Sanita Away From Home Makes a Difference in the Fight against Cancer

Sanita Away From Home spreads awareness against cancer.

Knowing that Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women and believing that community awareness can help save lives and boost women’s wellness, Sanita Away From Home has recently collaborated with Barbara Nassar Foundation for Cancer Patients Support to promote the importance of early detection.

A special conference under the motto “Pink Day” was held by both Sanita Away From Home and the foundation on November 10th, 2016 at Eddé Sands Hotel – Jbeil in order to highlight the vital role prevention plays in securing women’s health and alleviating the dire impacts of the disease.

By joining the foundation in its mission to support adult cancer patients financially and psychologically and granting them a better chance to survive cancer, Sanita Away From Home brings forth INDEVCO Founder’s philosophy “what is good for the community is good for the company” and underlines the management’s commitment to empowering consumer’s wellness for a better quality of life.

During the conference, Mr. Hani Nassar, the husband of Mrs. Barbara Nassar, shed light on testimonials from patients who succeeded in overcoming cancer with dignity thanks to the support of the foundation. Mr. Nassar also seized the opportunity to emphasize the foundation’s mission and objectives as well as its ongoing collaboration with the Lebanese government to pass laws on enforcing examination among Lebanese women.

Head of bone marrow transplants at MLH Dr. Fady Nasr took an active part in the conference by lecturing about the available treatments and preventive measures that contribute to the fight against the disease. According to Nasr, prevention includes yearly mammograms, clinical or breast self-examination, and other healthy habits and wellbeing tips that reduce the risk of cancer.

Women who attended the conference wore pink and white shirts to express moral support; they were then handed awareness gifts as a reminder for taking the test.

Attendees were then invited to a brunch at the terrace overlooking the sea to celebrate the efforts and share a message of hope.
