‘’The Cancer Game Plan PH aims to strengthen prevention and early detection of the disease, and increase access to treatment options for more Filipinos’’

– Dr. Beaver Tamesis (President and Managing Director, MSD in the Philippines)

‘’Patients are usually afraid of being told that they have cancer mainly because many still think having cancer is a death sentence. Second. they become anxious of expenses if they go to a doctor, and once they are diagnosed with cancer. Lastly, the most common reason actually is lack of knowledge. They don’t know that their symptoms are already cancer.’’

– Dr. Meredith Garcia (Medical Oncologist)

‘’Stakeholders are not going to solve the problems of cancer care in one summit, but it’s a step in the right direction’’

– Dr. Esperanza Cabral (Cancer Survivor & Former Secretary, DoH and DSWD)


“For patients, treatment is the stage in the cancer journey that is better battled with the support from loves ones. A number were thankful of the government’s financial aids coursed through the PhilHealth, Philippine Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), and social services from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Department of Health (DoH).”
