About OAC

What we do and why it is important
Outdoor Against Cancer (OAC) is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the fight against cancer and other non-communicable disease (NCDs) on a global scale. 40% of all cancers could be prevented by a healthier lifestyle. Regular exercise and outdoor sports, a balanced diet, intact nature and sustainability, and mental and physical well-being are the four key pillars of OAC's mission. To spread this message, OAC is active in numerous countries. Key activities are the qualification of certified trainers, the OAC Health App, as well as numerous projects with partners in the EU and internationally.

Diagnosis in 2016, no tumor regression until January 2017. From January to March 2017, the tumor decreased by 60 percent. When I participated for the first time in January 2017 in a training of OAC with Petra, I of course did not know what to expect. However, after half the training session, I realized that this is not just a support group for cancer patients, but that it is more about offering a perspective to people with cancer diagnosis. 
And this is exactly what Petra manages to do very well with her open, open-minded and accommodating manner. When you know her background story and see how she deals with her disease and what she has made of it, it makes me look very positively into the future. In short: Petra is synonymous with optimism! For me, Petra is not only a trainer or sports teacher, but also a wonderful psycho-oncologist. Would you like to know how I go home after a training session? With a big smile on my face, even if it's raining.
