The group La Romana 4×4 Offroad will hold a conference on Friday, October 12, lead by several professionals in the area who will discuss the importance of the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. This event is free and will take place at Youth Alliance in Buena Vista Norte at 7:00 p.m.
The invited lecturers are Dr. Rafael Herrera, Ms. Sahaidy Arriaga and Dr. Yadira Cedeño. These professionals have volunteered to provide their knowledge in hopes that the community of La Romana receives guidance, loses fear and eliminates taboos about cancer. The topics that will be presented are: the importance and benefits of radiotherapy; the prevention and proper management of lymphedema; and the symptoms and signs of breast cancer.
The members of La Romana 4×4 Offroad Club are aware that cancer is a reality that can touch the life of any person. In fact, within the group members there are survivors of this disease. It is proven that early detection makes a big difference. More and more people are diagnosed increasing the percentage of survival and leads to a better quality of life.
That is why it is important to know how to perform breast self-exams at least once a month, the details of the disease and to support those who are going through this test.
In addition to the conference, La Romana 4×4 Offroad Club is organizing its 3rd rally on Sunday, October 21, which also aims to support the fight against breast cancer. This tour will depart from Multiplaza La Romana and will have as final destination the recreational club Campo Azul, located in the Ramón Santana municipality of San Pedro de Macorís province, where guests can enjoy everything the complex offers, such as swimming pools, activities, food, etc.
The Rally is open to all audiences and all types of vehicles, as the main goal is to raise funds to help the warriors who are currently struggling with the disease.
Last year the event was attended by around 120 people and this year it is expected to have the participation of 200 people or more. The tickets for the trip cost RD $ 1,000 adults and RD $ 600 children, from 6 to 9 years old.
