CITY OF MALOLOS— As part of the seven point agenda of the Provincial Government of Bulacan, the Provincial Public Health Office in cooperation with the Guangzhou Modern Cancer Hospital in China held a free Health Symposium on Medical Care Beyond Boundary yesterday at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center in this city.

Dr. Peng Xiaochi, chief expert and Director of the Oncology Department of Guangzhou Modern Cancer Hospital who led the symposium said through his interpreter Jane Lau, that cancer, known as a disease without treatment can now be treated.

“Cancer is surely deadly, but through the help of modern technology marami ng nati-treat, 95% of all the cancers that we know, meron ng treatment, especially those of the early stage. And I believe na sa future, lahat magkakaroon na ng treatment,” Dr. Xiaochi stressed.

He discussed during the symposium the modern ways to kill cancer cells that are more effective with less side effects.

“We can treat cancer through intra-arterial. In here we target the arteries na nagbibigay ng dugo sa tumor, meaning babarahan natin ‘yung mga ugat na ito that will eventually kill the tumor. Meron din tayong cryoablation o ‘yung pag-iinject ng super cold temperature, negative 160 degree celcius sa balat sa ibabaw ng tumor to freeze and kill the cancer cells and we can also use the opposite of this, the radio frequency ablation or using super high temperature, from 60-80 degree celcius at marami pang iba,” said Dr. Xiaochi.

Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado also shared the province’s efforts to improve the health condition in Bulacan and said that he is happy to know that there’s a new hope for cancer patients thru modern technology.

“We will learn a lot from this. Alam natin na talagang napakadelikado ng cancer, ‘yung iba pag meron nito parang nawawalan na ng pag-asa, naghihintay na lang at dahil dito nakita natin na meron naman palang pag-asa, nagagamot naman pala. I hope din na ma-perfect na ang stem cell o ‘yung tinatawag na medicine of the future and that it can be commercialized cheaper para hindi lang ‘yung mga mayayaman ang pwedeng maka-afford,” said Alvarado.

Dr. Xiaochi also said in the open forum afterwards that there is also a charitable management in their hospital for those who really can’t afford the treatment through which they will undergo the evaluation.

They can also be contacted for a free cancer consultation at Unit A-1102, 6730 JAKA Bldg., Ayala Avenue, Makati City or through the telephone numbers 02-8212-1222 and 63939-925-2033.

Mr. Benett Ho, General Manager for Philippines of Bo-Ai Medical Services Inc. and Vice. Gov. Daniel Fernando also attended the symposium along with more than 300 participants that includes medical students and health practitioners from the province. ###
