Several partners embraced Instituto Mário Penna’s Pink October campaign and carried out awareness-raising actions for the prevention of breast cancer.
Last Monday afternoon, October 25th, Mário Penna’s team was at Precon, in Pedro Leopoldo, for a chat with the company’s employees. Eliane Fraga, a patient from Entrelaçadas (the IMP’s support group for women with breast cancer) told a little about her fight against the disease, talked about the difficulties of recovery, and emphasized the importance of prevention and the annual mammography.
At the Training and Emergency Center (CUREM), two patients from the Interlaced group were responsible for sending a message about the importance of preventive exams and giving personal testimony about how they faced and are recovering from breast cancer.
Another cool event that had the participation of three patients in the group was the Encounter of Motorcycle Ride Beneficent.
They not only talked to the women who were there, but also witnessed the sale of bandanas by motorcyclists, which had 100% of the amount allocated to Instituto Mário Penna to help in the treatment of cancer patients.
Is that you? Have you had your mammogram or other preventive exam this year?
Don’t be left out of this campaign. Participate and share!
