CANCER FAIR 2014: Life Despite Cancer
Attention: To all cancer patients and survivors plus their family members and caregivers
You are cordially invited to the 5th Cancer Fair: Life Despite Cancer to be held at the Henry Noble Gymnasium at the Trinity University of Asia in Quezon City on October 12, 2014. This is organized by Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO).
The Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO) is a professional non-profit organization of board certified medical oncologist that aims to enhance the science and ethical and holistic practice of cancer care in the country.
There's still life even if you have cancer. Since 1969, the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO) has tried to stage a venue for cancer patients and caregivers to have fun. Now on its 5th Fair, PSMO's 2014 Cancer Fair is set to bring more fun to the involved and loved ones on October 12, 2014. The cancer fair will be showcasing a wide range of companies dealing with food and nutrition, beauty products, wigs, hotels and more.
The objective of the event is to offer the cancer patients together with their family and friends, a memorable moment together enjoying a day with fun, excitement and bond with other patients, nurses and doctors. A fun-filled day with games, sharing, performances and everything in between.
I've never talked about it, but I lost my dad, aunt and best friend from cancer and it was devastating. Had we known about this fun event, we could have at least let them join in the fun. So, the least that I can do now is to share this event with you my dear readers, please do your share and let other people ( especially those with cancer and survivors as well as their caregivers) know about this upcoming event too.
The past cancer fairs that were held last 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2009 had several celebrity volunteers who participated in giving fun activities and treats to patients.
This year, the organizers hope to bring more exciting exhibits, activities and kiosks to help cancer patients simply enjoy a day of fun. Fellows from PSMO and participating oncologists will be present during the event as well as some bloggers. Celebrities like Angel Aquino and Yay Yushkova of Yay Designs will also be present during the cancer fair. The organizers are happy as more and more celebrities are expressing their commitment to the advocacy event.
