This coming Sunday, January 28th, when the sun sets, the Philharmonic will glow with pink for the first time, both outside and inside. All this is to draw attention to the problem of preventing cervical cancer. In this way, we join the European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week organized by the International Association of Medical Students, IFMSA-Poland.
Every day the Philharmonic is lit in white. We can also, in exceptional circumstances, illuminate the colors of Szczecin: white-green-blue or in national colors - white and red
- says Ewa Porada-Spieszny, deputy director of the Philharmonic. We are planning to expand the possibilities of illumination. To this end, we started talks with Osram. The first tests of the new solutions will be carried out this Sunday. We will combine them with this noble idea, as we have joined the action of the European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week and we will light up in pink - in the colors of the action. Interestingly, the pink color will not only be seen by people outside. The lobby of the Philharmonic will also be glowing pink
- adds the deputy director.
This year's edition of the European Cervical Cancer Prevention Week falls on January 22-28. Across Europe, there will be numerous educational campaigns that promote knowledge about cervical cancer. One of the initiatives related to the Cervical Cancer Prevention Week is the PINK LIPS PROJECT - an event organized by the International Association of Medical Students, IFMSA-Poland.
Cervical cancer affects nearly one and a half million women around the world. In Poland, over 3,000 patients hear such a diagnosis every year. Early diagnosed cervical cancer (in the pre-invasive phase) gives a good chance of a complete recovery. Unfortunately, as the disease often develops asymptomatically, in many patients it is detected in the advanced phase, which is difficult to cure. Subsequent regular cytological tests allow early detection of cancer and effective therapy.
