The Pink Movement: Dancing their way for Cervical Cancer Awareness

Brainbox Inc. presents The Pink Movement, a dance marathon for cervical cancer awareness at the Republiq Bar, Resorts World Manila at the New Port City in Pasay City last July 24. The dance marathon aims to create awareness among women especially the teens on the risk of cervical cancer where as one of the major contributor is the infection through the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). The event is divided into two parts; the information drive and the dance marathon where the part includes participants from 21 schools and 16 dance studios within Luzon.

On the information drive, Healthway Medical OB-Gyne Dr. Lillian Quismundo and Healthway Marketing Manager Kate Cruz, shares how cervical cancer evolves from an HPV infection along with other contributors like smoking, stress and stress related disorders, dietary factors, hormonal contraception and drugs, and family history of the disease. According to Dr. Quismundo, through vaccination it will protect them from having cervical cancer, and with three shots/dosage it will last for a lifetime. The vaccine is cheap and its available in Healthway Medical and it is provided by GlaxoSmithKline. According to Cruz they can contact Healthway by calling 751-HWAY(4929) for more information about the vaccination and for appointment.

The second part of the event is the dance marathon headed by the G Force's head instructor and choreographer teacher Georcelle Dapat-Sy. Participants will be doing sets of dance steps where those who cannot jive with the moves will be eliminated until there will be only five remaining in the dance floor. Aside from the prizes that awaits the winning participants is to express their passion in dancing and participate on this advocacy to spread awareness on cervical cancer and how to fight it.

The event is co-presented by GlaxoSmithKline, Laban ni Maria sa Cervical Cancer, Sorciage by Wacaol, Artistry by Amway, Healthway Medical, Magic 89.9 and Team Manila and hosted by JC Cuadrado, Iya Villania and DJ Suzy of Magic.
