CANCER SUPPORT PROGRAM


Below is the concept of the program for the Cancer group of the Parish of Saint Martin de Porres, discussed and prepared by the group. This is a propose group that will try to cater to the cancer patients within the parish. The endeavor started to progress because it is also a part of the apostolate to the sick as the patron saint St. Martin de Porres have tried to address. Well, there is no cancer patients then during his time. However, this is a group that almost of the sectors of the present society have tried to address. Yesterday, I saw a tarpaulin of one Baranggay calling for a breast cancer individuals for a seminar. I forgot the date, So, i ask the help of Sis. Luz Abuzo who acts as the president of the cancer group of the parish to investigate and if I am not mistaken that the seminar was held today to attend it hoping to see how to conduct such seminar and to observe intelligently.
One of the program we encountered are the statistics or rather to look for the patients themselves within the parish. So, we devised a tool such a survey form that we can really see how many are the cancer patients here. Beforehand, we ask the Department of Health and the Local Government Units for the said data but they could not provide us of any names. i am posting here to share and if you could find some things or issues missing, please do not hesitate to comment.
