29 Jan 22 MARCH 2019 – Benefit Concert for VUB Yamina Krossa Fund – deSingel, Antwerp – 20:00
After she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Yamina Krossa started a campaign for the complete reimbursement of breast reconstructions with breast cancer patients in 2015. She founded the ngo Benetiet to that end. In 2016 she succeeded in her goal. Secretary of Health Maggie De Block reached a deal with plastic surgeons for breast reconstructions with body own tissue. The battle for reimbursement is thereby won, but the battle against breast cancer continues unabated.
