Women with Brave Hearts Shoots Cervical Cancer

Last Saturday, I got the chance to meet some of the members of Bravehearts, an NGO that aims to raise awareness on cervical cancer prevention in the Philippines.

A number of bloggers were invited for an intimate lunch meet-up. Romina, the ever kikay yet tough girl who invited me to this empowering event, served as the emcee that afternoon. She gave a little overview on Bravehearts like their past activities, tie-ups, celebrity endorsers and some of their future plans.

To be honest with you, I don’t really know much on Cervical Cancer. I just found out that Cervical Cancer is actually  the second most common cancer among Filipino women! This means that we girls must not only worry on the possibility of having breast cancer (the top most common cancer among women all over the world). The good news here is it’s never too late to undergo treatment or vaccination.

Dr. Becky Singson gave a short talk on the Cause, Stages and Prevention of Cervical Cancer among women. The talk made me realize that in the country, only a few is aware of the facts presented to us that afternoon. Thr group is planning to have regular screenings in different places in the Philippines. They’re also planning to conduct a number of blogger events which can help raise awareness about the group and how to prevent cervical cancer which are SVA, Cryotherapy and Vaccination (will tackle more on these on another blog entry to be posted soon).

  • The past week was pretty hectic yet fun. I finally landed a semi-full time job somewhere at United Nations. Why semi-full time? I am only required to be seen visibly at the office three times a week and I can do the rest of the tasks at home. I have to admit that my body needs to adjust with the schedule, but I’m really ok with it. New ideas, new tasks, new environment means more learning and more fun!
  • I read a number of comments from different bloggers who are eager to see Kuya Bunso, the first ever blogger film written, produced and directed by yours truly. I am also excited as much as everyone is, but errr.. we haven’t transferred the tapes yet LOL. Sorry na 😀
  • I attended two blogger events for a cause – the first one has something to do with our environment and the other one has something to do with cervical cancer. I am glad that companies and organizations are now tapping bloggers in raising awareness on certain issues like what I mentioned. Blog entries will be posted anytime this week.
  • Top bloggers Coy Caballes, Fritz Tentativa and Winston Almendras made us proud with their talk at the Mensa Day last Sunday at Fully Booked. The three good-looking and talented guys deserve a round of applause and standing ovation (parang Rihanna song lang LOL). I will post a blog entry and some videos soon.
  • I’ll be going back home to Dagupan City on Thursday and I might attend the SEO/SEM Workshop at Urdaneta City University on Friday. This is my chance to meet some of my kababayans who are actually doing well on this field. I am also eager to hear Ms. Janette Toral and Mr. Gary Viray talk in Pangasinan. It’s my first time in four months to go back home.
  • I’ve been having some emo moments lately which usually lasts for 30 minutes. Is that weird? I think not. The phone call with my mom the last time made me burst into tears at a public place, but I laughed out loud after hearing Carlo sing a Christmas song at the background. EMO MOMENT FAIL!
