CEPM promotes breast cancer prevention in its campaign “A todos nos queda el rosa” (“We all have pink left”)

  • More than 300 men and women from Los Manantiales, Friusa and Isla Saona have benefited from talks on mental health and breast cancer prevention.
  • The initiative promotes unity and solidarity, inspiring people to join forces, share experiences and knowledge, and promote an atmosphere of understanding and support in this joint struggle.

La Altagracia. – In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Punta Cana-Macao Energy Consortium (CEPM) is carrying out a series of activities dedicated to the prevention of this disease under its annual campaign “A Todos nos Queda el Rosa” (We All Have Pink Left). Aware that cancer should not be faced alone, CEPM seeks to unite the community in the fight against this disease that affects so many lives in the Dominican Republic and around the world.

As part of this initiative, CEPM has developed throughout the month of October a series of talks entitled “Resilience: Emotions and Cancer”, with facilitator Ruth Esther Marte, a clinical psychologist, in an effort to strengthen resilience and emotional support. In addition, the CEPM team, together with Meraris Vargas, Superintendent of Social Management in this company, designed a workshop related to emotional tools through plants, providing the community with valuable tools to face emotional challenges in the context of cancer.

“Cancer is not a battle to be faced alone. ‘A Todos nos Queda el Rosa’ refers to the fact that all people are connected by the experience of fighting this disease; whether as patients, survivors, family members, friends or as part of the community. This phrase inspires to join forces, to share experiences and knowledge, and to promote an environment of understanding and support,” said Helena Saenz, Senior Manager of Communications and Shared Value at CEPM.

This year, the initiative was launched in the community of Los Manantiales, generating a positive impact on more than 30 families, with the participation of the teaching staff of the local school. It then expanded to Mano Juan on Saona Island, and ended successfully in the community of Friusa.

In this regard, the company has given talks on mental health and breast cancer prevention to its employees and the communities in its concession area, benefiting more than 300 men and women, including cases of families with a history of breast cancer.

“A Todos nos Queda el Rosa” is one of the initiatives through which CEPM reaffirms its commitment to the health and well-being of the community, and continues to actively work to raise awareness about the importance of prevention and support in the fight against breast cancer.
