Globeathon 2017

​Children urged to participate in cancer awareness

Dr. Mathias Sapuri believes that this not only helps others, but increases their own awareness on the illness.

Sapuri is an obstetrician and gynaecologist with Pacific International Hospital. He is coordinator of the annual Globeathon to End Women’s Cancers.

He is calling on the participation of this population for the walk this Sunday, September 24.

He said such programs were designed to raise awareness and their involvement would help them in the long run.

POM to join in on global movement

Gynaecologic cancer is an uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells that originate from the reproductive organs.

There are several types of gynaecologic cancers which include cervical, gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD), primary peritoneal, ovarian, uterine/endometrial, vaginal and vulvar cancers.

On behalf of the country, Pacific International Hospital is leading a walk on Sunday, September 24, to join the Globeathon to End Women’s Cancers.
