FEBRUARY 15 IS INTERNATIONAL CHILDHOOD CANCER DAY
SUPPORT THE CHILDREN
PRESIDENT RODRIGO ROA-DUTERTE SURVIVOR'S DAY 2021 MESSAGE
"When a child is afflicted with cancer, it rocks the whole world surrounding this little one. Families come together, and occasionally they fall apart from the strain of dealing with a catastrophic illness. This is particularly true in places like Mindanao, Philippines where child health and nutrition is worse compared to other parts of the country and cancer treatment further drain existing limited resources. Finding cures and providing holistic, multidisciplinary care continue to be a tremendous challenge. Nevertheless, despite the difficulties and lack of resources, there is something we have in abundance – HOPE."
