I didn’t know till recently that my good friend Meanne Alcordo-Solomon suffered and survived Breast Cancer.  Meanne was in Gensan last week for a speaking engagement for the local Rotary Clubs.  I knew her to be very active with Rotary so I thought she was going to dwell on Rotary issues.  When she asked me to assist her I obliged being a Rotarian (albeit inactive) myself and because I love Meanne.  I got the shock of my life when I discovered that her presentation materials were all about her journey as a cancer survivor.  I had to embrace Meanne mainly because I felt so inadequate as a friend having not known about her ordeal.  Meanne hugged me back – no words were said.  I just knew that she understood.



Listening to Meanne’s journey made me realized that it’s not too late to make a difference.  Her staunch advocacy to Breast Cancer Awareness has produced so much goodwill such that the Cebu City Council finally passed an ordinance   creating a Cancer Welfare Task Force.  Thank you, Meanne for opening my eyes.  I, too, can serve.  I will be a strong advocate for Early Breast Cancer Detection awareness!

    Very timely post. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    Me’anne’s cause has saved hundreds of lives of women who have heard her talk about her ordeal.

    Cancer does not only affect the patients but their families. Therefore, it should be everyone’s concern.

    Thanks Me’anne for making people in GenSan aware. Love you mare.

    Salamat Orman for this post too.
