Phoenix, AZ, February 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Charles Irion along with volunteers from The 3000 Club Phoenix, Arizona supported by The 3000 Club Philippines with local town doctors and surgeons will perform checkups for 450 women with particular focus on cervical cancer awareness and prevention through pap smear. Those found with cervical pre-lesions can be treated with cryo therapy. Those found with lesions will be referred to tertiary hospitals for further treatment/surgery. The club will also be performing minor surgeries if necessary, as well as providing one extra nutritious meal during the duration of the mission for mothers, pregnant women and children ten and below.
Cervical cancer is the fifth most common cancer for women and about every two minutes, a woman will die of cervical cancer somewhere around the world. In the Philippines, it is estimated that 12 Filipino women die of cervical cancer every day, while around five out of 10 women suffering from cervical cancer may die within five years. In a year, around 6,000 cases and 4,349 deaths due to cervical cancer are documented.
It’s Charles Irion and The 3000 Club’s hope this mission will help decrease the number of women dying of cervical cancer and help improve the health and wellbeing of indigent women and children by bringing to them health services and education which otherwise they would be able to obtain.
