Redován 30/10/2017. Nobody is on the margins of a disease such as cancer, and the neighbors and residents of Redován demonstrated yesterday by going massively to the march organized by the City in favor of the fight against this disease. The event was confined to the commemoration of World Breast Cancer Day on October 19, and for that reason rose was the predominant color in the four-kilometer solidarity walk in which about 1,500 people participated, and whose collection will be integral to the work that is done in the fight against the disease.
The journey began in the Plaza de la Paz and ended at the Avenida de Orihuela, where a monument was discovered with the pink ribbon representing the fight against breast cancer dedicated to “all of them”, women who suffer or have suffered this disease, “and especially those who could not overcome it,” said Councilor for Social Welfare, Nely Ruiz. The mayor stressed the fact that this third edition of the march “has been the most multitudinous so far, which has done that we have fulfilled our objective that was no other to involve and raise awareness of the people of Rio Grande do Sul about how important it is the research and above all, on a personal level, to pass the necessary revisions in case it is necessary, to be able to fight against cancer and to overcome it “. As for the collection, it is expected to exceed the 4,400 euros of last year.
The mayor of Redován, Emilio Fernández, was in charge of uncovering the monument, accompanied by representatives of the local associations that have promoted and collaborated in the realization of this event, the Association of Women Redován, the Spanish Association against Cancer and Aracelia . Also involved are the La Vega Association of Social Services and of course, the City of Redován. At the end of the march and thanks to the collaboration of several shops, an appetizer was served and product raffles were made, to end a Zumba session.
Emilio Fernández stressed that the whole act was made “in the female” and recalled, as it did yesterday after the march, that “one in eight women will develop breast cancer, but above all we must take into account that the 74% of cases are cured because important therapeutic advances are being made. ” The first mayor of Radovan has indicated that the municipality is a pioneer in the implementation of the “areola solidarity”, a program with which breast cancer patients can finish rebuilding their breast and has anticipated that “since the suffering of this disease is not only physical but also emotional, facing the beginning of the year we want to launch a program of emotions in which we will work as a group. He added that “Redovan is a municipality that commits itself to women who have breast cancer, and we want all of them to know that they will never be alone here.”
