Breast Cancer is a disease which can affect men, women and children, and can be fatal if not detected or treated at its early stages. The fact is that 3 out of 10 women who live in the Philippines are suffering from Breast Cancer. This means that 30% of the entire female population in the country has this health ailment.
Advanced medical treatments are making it easier for more patients to survive Breast Cancer, but these methods are quite expensive. Because of this, most people cannot afford the procedure. External factors like the present economic state of the nation, the issue of inflation and taxes, or that they are either unemployed or are working for minimum wage or less are not helping things either. It is heartbreaking to know that many individuals choose to ignore Breast Cancer because they would rather use whatever money they have to feed their families or pay the bills.
The good news is that you can join the fight and help save lives. This year’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign is a joint project between Lyric Opera of the Philippines and the Resorts World Manila. Chino Toledo and the Grupo 20/21 Orchestra will join musical artists like Jose Mari Chan, Anica Ordan, Franco and Ayen Laurel and Ana Feleo in presenting a Christmas-themed concert where proceeds from the ticket sales will fund the chemotherapy for the patients. Each ticket you buy will send one Breast Cancer patient to that much needed medical treatment. The catch is that the project will only push through if at least 1,200 tickets have been sold.
The ticket prices are as follows:
Total Seats – Price
VIP 288- PHP 2,800
GOLD 280 -PHP 2,500
SILVER 439 -PHP 2,200
BRONZE 126 -PHP 2,000
