Oct10 - Passionately You - Don't Duck It

The Passionately YOU Cervical & Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is a voluntary collaboration between Assunta Hospital, Asia Assistance, 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 raise funds for the Community Treatment Program at Assunta Hospital that provides aid to cancer patients from the low income group.

■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.

Don’t Duck It is a social media campaign under Passionately You that aims to help further our reach to the public using social media in various forms and ideas, sharing various on-ground awareness events and activities as well as hoping to create a viral effect in order to draw more attention towards our cause and to share knowledge on early detection and prevention of breast and cervical cancer.

The committee are currently gathering pledges on to show that we care for those who suffered from breast and cervical cancer and more importantly, we care for our health too.
Either pledge thru monetary or purchase their campaign t-shirts & raffle tickets and help spread the “Don’t Duck It” message to your friends and family.
Funds from t-shirt & raffle ticket sales go to Assunta Foundation which helps less fortunate cancer patients. Shirts are going for RM30 & raffle tickets going for RM5 each.

Raffles draw will be done and prizes including a 42″ LED TV, Apple Macbook Air, Holiday Travel vouchers, iPad2, SONY Playstation 3, and cash vouchers to be won!
Last but not least, lock your date on 22nd October 2011 for the Don’t Duck It Party happening at Jaya One.

It’s a whole day carnival-like event aimed at the public to create awareness on leading a healthy lifestyle on top of creating awareness on breast and cervical cancer prevention.

The activities including game stalls, performances, and most importantly, on-site health checks! That’s what Don’t Duck It Party by Passionately You is all about.
