THE PASSIONATELY YOU - Cervical and Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.

The Passionately You - Cervival and Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is a voluntary collaboration between Assunta Hospital, Asia Asssitance, Jaya One and Pj Live Arts founded to encourage the community to support the cause for cervical & breast cancer awareness and early detection.

It also helps to raise funds for the Community Treatment Program at Assunta Hospital that provides aids to cancer patients from the low income group. It started out as Passionately Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign mainly targeted at females aged 25 years old and above to encourage awareness and detection. In 2009, cerviacl cancer was added to the campaign cause to further stress the importance of healthcare.

Main Objective:
Raise awareness (to educate people on how to detect, what to do, and how to deal with) to the masses, starting from 18 years old and moving upwards to 45 years old.

Secondary Objective:
Fund raising for Assunta Hospital Foundation's Social Welfare Fund. The Foundation provides subsidized or free-of-charge treatments to patients in the low income group.
