On September 26, Jiahui Health will kick off its “Pink Ribbon- We Care More” event series with a small piano concert. The series is intended to honor and celebrate “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” and promote breast cancer prevention and treatment.
Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumor in women worldwide and the leading cause of death from cancer in women. According to data from the National Cancer Center of China, there were about 304,000 cases of breast cancer in 2019, accounting for 17.10% of annual cancer cases. In the promotion of breast cancer prevention and treatment, the "pink ribbon" has gradually become a globally recognized symbol, and October has become an important time for the promotion of breast cancer prevention and research.
Pro bono consultation and surgery for breast cancer patients
Jiahui International Hospital will cooperate with the breast cancer patient community recruit a limited number of lower-income breast cancer patients to receive pro bono consultations and breast reconstruction surgery from Dr. Tibor Kovacs, Chairman of the European Society of Oncology and Surgery and Director of the Jiahui Breast Institute.
“Pink Ribbon” bracelets raise money for a worthy cause
During this month of charity activities, every Jiahui visitor will receive customized themed charity bracelets and gift cards. The specially-designed pink bracelets, emblazoned with one of three messages, strength, hope or faith, aim to promote the "Pink Ribbon" activity and call on people to be more aware of breast cancer. Visitors can then scan a QR code on their gift card to donate directly to help breast cancer patients.
In addition, Jiahui will also organize a series of women’s health fairs at Jiahui International Hospital, with all funds being donated to charity organizations that help breast cancer patients.
Harnessing the healing power of music
Every visitor to Jiahui International Hospital has come to expect soothing music to greet them. But this October, Jiahui is kicking it up a notch by setting up a small stage in our main lobby and inviting young Shanghai musicians to perform live, conveying our hopes and expectation for breast cancer patients through the beauty of music.
At the concert site, pink themed decorations and a small charity art show entitled "Hope" will serve as accompaniment to the beautiful music. Working together, they will transform Jiahui International Hospital into an even more pleasing environment for patients.
Three such concerts will be held during the “Pink Ribbon- We Care More” campaign, on September 26 (Saturday, 13:30-15:00), October 16 (Friday, 11:00-12:30) and October 31 (Saturday, 13:30-15:00). Under the premise of complying with the epidemic prevention and control regulations, the concerts and accompanying art show and fairs are open to the public. Jiahui invites everyone to join us in honoring “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”.
