Jose Marie Chan to Sing Hope for Breast Cancer Patients

Jose Marie Chan to Sing for Breast Cancer Awareness!
It has been confirmed that Jose Marie Chan will join the lineup of artists performing for an upcoming Christmas fundraising concert this December as part of breast cancer awareness!
This month Breast Cancer awareness is being promoted in different places. I saw Go Pink movement in Alabang and I've comes across a handful of small organizations in Manila that are aiming to provide charity or change for those who are suffering from breast cancer.

The Challenge and Hope
Breast cancer affects both men and women, and just because it starts at the breast it doesn't meant it stays there. Cancer on the breast can spread to other parts of your body too, like every other cancer. Some people defeat the challenge (Miriam Defensor, ikaw ba yan?) but some don't come close.

Even more people are still undergoing the challenge. I can only imagine, and probably not even be anywhere near accurate, how painful and difficult it is to have breast cancer. What people who suffer from cancer need most is support from loved ones and the chance to be happy again despite their situation.

Giving Hope Through Songs
In light of the Christmas spirit (yes, October na Pasko na sa Pinas) and in honor of those who courageously face the cards they've been dealt with,  The Philippine Foundation for Breast Care Inc. (PFBCI) teamed up with Resorts World Manila, Megaworld Foundation Inc., and the Lyric Opera of the Philippines to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer patients for their survival.

This fundraiser will come in the form of a concert entitled: Celebrate with Songs of Hope: A Christmas Fundraising Concert. It is a part of many breast cancer awareness activities for this year.

The Christmas Fundraising Concert
The Christmas-themed concert will be held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila on December 16, 2015 at 7:30 pm.
The audience will be graced by the presence of this lineup of celebrities and artists:

  • Jose Marie Chan
  • Franco
  • Ayen Laurel
  • Anna Feleo
  • Noel Azcona
  • Randy Gilongo
  • Sherwin Sozon
  • John Glenn Gaerlan
  • Anica Ordan
  • Jane Wee
  • Andrea Melisa Camba
  • Stephanie Aguilar
  • Dave de Jesus
  • David Cicero Pado
  • Raymon Muyot
  • Nomher Nival
  • Mary Patrice Pacis
  • Naomi Sison
  • Marie Antonette Pascual

and of course, Chino Toledo and the Grupo 20/ 21 Orchestra as the music providers of the event.

The concert will begin at 7:30 pm but it will mostly be a part of an ongoing campaign to educate people about the impact of Breast Cancer. People will be given an idea on what it's like to have breast cancer, how it can change lives and what people can do to survive it.

The proceeds of the concert will become "chemotherapy funds" that will be administered to poverty-stricken patients in the Philippines.
