“Cura” means “care” in latin, while “Co” is something we do together. Co-operation, we work together and help each other to show care. Also, when it is really difficult.
Courage to care
We all want to show our care in life’s most fragile situations, but it requires courage. We believe that together we can support each other to find the courage. Because it IS hard. But that is exactly why it is important!
The Cocuura C
Everyone of us will experience the path of life taking a U-turn. No one walks free. Both we ourselves and our loved ones can be affected by illness, accident and serious crises. The curly C in our logo illustrates the curly road of life.
You can close your eyes, but the problem will not go away.
- One of three Danes will contract cancer, but two of three Danes will be the relative of a cancer patient. Add to this other critical illnesses, serious life crises, accidents and deaths that can affect all families.
- Diet, smoking, alcohol, exercise, sleep and stress are the most common causes of lifestyle diseases, which account for 40% of the disease burden in Denmark.
- • 51% of the Danish population is overweight or obese. Did you know that being overweight is the second biggest risk factor for cancer? – And being overweight also increases the risk of a wide range of other lifestyle & critical diseases.
It is not a question of if, but when one of your employees or colleagues is affected by critical illness or develops lifestyle diseases. The risk of an employee being a close relative is even greater.

Meet the founders
“I want to open the dialogue”
For more than 20 years, Lena Boel has worked with management, strategy and business development. Both as a manager in large international companies, and as an independent consultant and board member, Lena Boel has advised companies across industries.
Lena Boel was as a busy Brand Director, when in 2014 she was diagnosed with breast cancer triple negative – an aggressive type of cancer. 7 months of intense treatment lay ahead.
During her illness, the company she worked for went bankrupt, and a huge restoration started. The businesswoman faced both her biggest managerial challenge to date – and at the same time was in the middle of her biggest personal challenge: the fight against cancer.
With Cocuura, Lena Boel has a desire to help and inspire the business community to open the difficult dialogues at work. And a belief that together we can stand stronger when the path of life makes a U-turn.
“I want to prepare companies better”
Professional handball referee, Mads Hansen, has for 20 years refereed international handball at the top level and has participated twice in the Olympic Games, and whistled both European and World Cup finals, among other things.
After a long medical examination in 2012, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lymph cancer. An elongated course of illness, where the top referee was completely out of the game and only able to watch from the sideline, lay ahead.
The disease was so severe that Mads Hansen and his family had given up hope and were convinced that he was going to die. Fortunately, after a long, tough fight, Mads Hansen came out on the other side and is today completely cured.
Mads Hansen has co-founded Cocuura because he has a huge desire to equip Danish companies better to handle the major challenges that inevitably come up when a valued employee is hit by critical illness, accident or serious life crises.
