The Young Fighter
April 30, 2015
Each child is an adventure into a better life --- an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
As a celebration of the Cancer in Child Awareness Month this April, we will be posting this article to give people hope, especially those families whose children are afflicted with cancer.
This is a patient testimonial from a young boy who is currently undergoing radiation therapy at St. Cabrini Medical Center and Cancer Institute due to Malignant Meningioma. He is also a part of the Cancer Support Group that we have created last month to help the patients and their families go through their fight cancer against cancer emotionally and psychologically. This support group is one of our multi-disciplinary approaches to battle this dreaded disease and will not be possible without the cooperation of the Philippine Oncology Center Corporation.
MOTHER'S DAY AND MORE...
May 13, 2015
Motherhood : All love begins and ends there. – Robert Browning
She has always been there for us with her unconditional love and so we celebrate her unselfishness and dedication every year during Mother’s Day. St. Cabrini Medical Center and Cancer Institute gave tribute to all mothers in a different way…by giving focus on a mother’s health through our Layman’s Forum on Breast and Cervical Cancer.
Last May 11, 2015, we invited a lot of women, mothers mostly, to listen and participate through asking questions about Breast and Cervical Cancer. Dr. Joseph Thomas Noriega, our Breast Surgeon, gave a lecture about the causes, symptoms, prevention, and surgery of breast cancer. He also took time to answer the audience’s questions about the disease in layman’s terms for the audience to better understand and know more about this disease. It was an engrossing, lively discussion that has definitely enlightened a lot of women.
Dr. Menandro A. Villadelgado, our Oncologic Gynecologist, also gave an enlightening lecture on the causes, symptoms, and prevention of Cervical Cancer. He also entertained a lot of questions from the audience and helped a lot of women understand cervical cancer more.
