Despite wind and rain brought by typhoon Santi, ladies and their families trooped to “Cancer Chat in Baguio” on October 12, 2013.

Organized by Minda’s Buddies, in cooperation with ICanServe Foundation, speakers were Dr. Aldine Basa, breast surgeon at The Medical City Breast Clinic; Dr. Apolinario Pilit, a male breast cancer survivor and former health officer of Mountain Province; actress and breast cancer survivor Maritoni Fernandez, a member and volunteer of ICanServe Foundation; and Norman Sison, a journalist whose wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Minda’s Buddies is a Baguio City-based support group for cancer survivors and their kin. It is part of the ICanServe network and its president, Marivic Bugasto, is an active volunteer of ICanServe.
