Cardinal Santos Medical Center holds Webicon on Cancer Awareness

In Cardinal Medical Center's (CSMC) webicon entitled “One Big Fight: A Webicon on Ways to Prevent, Detect, and Treat Cancer ,” the hospital aims to increase awareness and provide attendees with prevention, detection and treatment that are practical to everyone especially those that are battling cancer.

Held via ZOOM last October 14, 2021 CSMC'slatest series of health-related conferences tapped its Cancer Institute consultants to discuss cancer and the lifesaving treatments that the medical institution can provide. The speakers’ panel was composed of Dr. Pauline Anne Cauton, Dr. Kitchie C. Antipuesto and Dr. Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng.

Cancer prevention lowers the risk of getting cancer and Dr. Kitchie C. Antipuesto talked on the different Ways to Prevent and Detect Cancer.

For her part, Dr. Pauline Anne Cauton  discussed the different cancer treatments.

Dr. Abesamis-Tiambeng, the chairperson of CSMC’s Cancer Institute, discussed the future of cancer treatment and therapy, including the services and facilities CSMC’s Cancer Center offers. She highlighted that the hospital’s Cancer Center is the first one-stop-shop cancer center in the country, with state-of-the-art chemotherapy and radiation facilities and other programs that provide a holistic healing process for cancer patients such as spiritual guidance and counselling opportunities.

We work together for a common goal - to give the best care possible to the cancer patient,” Dr. Abesamis-Tiambeng emphasized. “Our cancer center team [is] a group of caring, competent and compassionate individuals, committed to alleviate the plight of each cancer patient entrusted to our care. We invite you to partner with us and together we will win the battle against the Big C.

The stigma of death, misery and suffering had always been attached to cancer, but cancer should not be a death sentence. This and other myths should be dispelled. 
One of the session’s main objective was to dispel common myths and misconceptions about cancer detection, as well as touch on behaviors and lifestyle choices that contribute to the development of the disease. A proper understanding of the patient's disease and the treatment that follows is key towards cancer cure. 

 At CSMC, an individual with cancer is managed by a team of multi-disciplinary cancer care providers. Several developments in the arena of cancer treatment over decades guarantee that treatment can be given to all patients.

  1. This is such great information. I remember when my dad got his cancer diagnosis, he was very depressed. He's been cancer-free for 4 years now. There's definitely hope and continuing to study and understand it is key.

  2. Very good initiative from Cardinal Santos Med. People should be really made aware about this deadly disease and how it affects and impact the entire family.

  3. Very informative seminar, tamang tama naman because it's Breast Cancer Awareness month din.

  4. This is such a huge help to those who do not know where to start. I am thankful for the medical hospitals who conduct such seminars for those who are concerned.

  5. Prevention is really better than cure. This is a good initiative from Cardinal Santos Medical Center.

  6. I lost my paternal grandparents due to cancer. Back then, there's limited information about this medical condition. It's good that we have seminars such as this because cliche as it sounds, prevention is always better than cure.
