silver linings

A national homecoming and educational forum for breast cancer survivors, their families and
supporters, the next Silver Linings will be in Davao City in 2011, following successful salvos in Manila
(2005) and Cebu City (2008).

The event draws at least a thousand participants nationwide and unites different breast cancer
patient groups in the country. It provides a venue and opportunity for any breast cancer survivor
to feel hope collectively with fellow cancer survivors.

There have been follow up mini-forums for different mass-based patient groups in the country
introducing topics like "Promoting Patient Power," "Patient Counseling" and "Patient Navigation."
