In order to make lifesaving information on breast cancer more accessible to a wider audience, ICanServe Foundation launched the Cebuano version of its patient manual, “Kaya Ni Nimo!,” at Seda Hotel Ayala Center in Cebu City on October 5, 2023.
Hosted by ICanServe Cebu Chapter in partnership with Seda Hotel, the event brought together members of the media, and breast cancer survivors and advocates from Cebu and Manila.
The program featured Nelia Navarro, assistant coordinator of ICanServe Cebu; Nikoy de Guzman, ICanServe president; Alya Honasan, editor of the manual; and Dr. Tess Serrato-Libron from the Philippine Society of Breast Surgeons. Andi Pateña-Matheu of MyTV Cebu served as event host.
Now available as a free download in three languages: English, Filipino, and Cebuano, the Manual is written entirely by breast cancer survivors and validated by experts. This comprehensive manual is designed to guide breast cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers throughout every step of their journey, from understanding their diagnosis to living beyond cancer. It covers a wide range of topics, from the medical (understanding treatment options, managing side effects), to the personal (how to tell your family and friends), to the practical (financing cancer treatment). The Manual delivers vital information in a sisterly, conversational manner to help its readers feel less overwhelmed and intimidated.
