In today’s session of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, Councilor Nancy Socrates announced that the City Government of Puerto Princesa will be celebrating ‘Breast Cancer Consciousness Month’ on Thursday, October 27.
Socrates said she wants to pass a City Ordinance to make October a ‘Breast Cancer Consciousness Month Celebration’ in the City. “Inaayos pa natin ang iba pang data para maisama ito sa agenda. Importante kasi ang pagpapahalaga sa kalusugan partikular sa mga kababaihan na prone sa breast cancer,” she said.
The legislator also added that the celebration will be a way to increase awareness among Palaweños, including the risk factors of the cancer.
In connection with the said celebration, a motorcade will be held and will start at 11 a.m. with Mendoza Park as assembly venue. The said activity will be opened to everyone. As of press time, organizers for the event are still working with the City Traffic Management Office for the motorcade route, which will be announced the soonest time possible.
