Around the world, October has been chosen as the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to contribute to and raise support for the early detection, treatment and care of this type of illness.
In Panama, several events take place throughout the month to help raise awareness. This year, the team of INITIA PANAMA is participating in this important campaign through an alliance with FUNDAYUDA, where we will be collecting funds in Multiplaza next Friday. October 14 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Join us that day to contribute together so that a bigger number of women have access to better detection and care options! Together, we do better!
Also, we are proud to announce that our office will be serving as a donation drop-off site for FUNDAYUDA. Those interested in donating both men and women´s clothing and shoes (all in good state), please contact us for more information at 269-9664. At the end of October, INITIA PANAMA will be taking all donations to FUNDAYUDA.
Last, but not least, we would like to say that awareness only works when we TAKE ACTION on the information we receive. It’s not enough to see the information before us without doing anything. We have to make a pause in our rushed daily lives to give our health the place it deserves: go and make the doctor’s appointment you’ve been meaning to do for months, take the exams you need to take. Let´s take control of our most important asset: OUR LIVES!
Happy October! Please take a look at all the activities Panama has to offer during the month.
