Sassy Mama Supports: HKAHF Honors Children’s Cancer Awareness Month by Raising Money to Offer Free Scans

What's OnPost Category - What's OnWhat's On - Post Category - Community InvolvementCommunity Involvement

September is Children’s Cancer Awareness Month. Though we are all very familiar with the pink ribbons of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the mustaches in support of Movember, a month dedicated to the awareness of prostrate cancer, Children’s Cancer Awareness Month is unfortunately, not as highly publicised here in Hong Kong. In honor of Children’s Cancer Awareness month, and in it’s quest to help financially disadvantaged children in the region, Hong Kong Adventist Hospital Foundation (HKAHF) has collaborated with Queen Mary Hospital to provide local, underprivileged children who are suffering from cancer free MRI and PET CT scans.

The aim is to provide one scan to at least one child, who may not have otherwise had access to such treatment or medicine, every day. This will fast-track an otherwise long waiting period for these children to receive one of these scans, which can be so crucial in proper diagnosis and treatment of their cancer.

Receiving an MRI or PET CT scan, will allow the doctor to quickly diagnose where the cancer is located so that the child can obtain early treatment and receive the proper care needed. Many childhood cancers are now curable, but sadly, so many children don’t have access to treatment and medicine due to financial hardship.

Here’s your chance to offer support.  HKAHF and Queen Mary Hospital will be raising funds for these scans through public donations. Donation boxes have been placed throughout Hong Kong at all Cafe Habitu, Coffee Academics and Flex Studio locations and at Sunkids in Happy Valley.

When visiting any of these places, please take a minute and donate what you can. Whatever amount you can spare, every bit helps.

Donations can also be made online by visiting www.hkahf.org.hk.
