La plantilla de Palladium Hotel Group recibe la primera formación de Ibiza en materia de detección precoz del cáncer

Parte de la plantilla de Palladium Hotel Group ha acudido esta tarde a la primera sesión informativa para la detección precoz del cáncer, organizada por esta cadena hotelera en connivencia con la Asociación Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer, IFCC, en el marco de la primera experiencia piloto en Ibiza para difundir entre el personal de una empresa y expertos en salud hábitos saludables de vida y de prevención de esta enfermedad.

Una charla en la que la presidenta de la IFCC, Helen Watson, ha querido agradecer a Carmen Matutes, presidenta del Comité Ejecutivo de la Fundación Abel Matutes y subdirectora general de Palladium Hotel Group, su impulso para dar vida a esta iniciativa que ha matizado “va a marcar un antes y un después en las acciones informativas de otras empresas de las islas a las que queremos extrapolar este tipo de encuentros”. Watson ha presentado a los asistentes un vídeo, protagonizado por ellos mismos en el marco de la campaña ‘Think Pink’ en la que el personal de algunos establecimientos de la cadena participa activamente para recaudar fondos destinados a la lucha contra el cáncer de mama. “Tenemos varias maneras de enfrentarnos a esta enfermedad y debemos hacerlo desde todos los flancos”, ha apuntado la presidenta de IFCC, “con actividades solidarias, como esta con la que ya estáis comprometidos, sometiéndonos a chequeos médicos para detectar la enfermedad en estadios primarios, llevando una vida saludable, invirtiendo en investigación y programas médicos o ayudando a las personas que padecen esta enfermedad y a sus familias”.

Carmen Matutes, quien ha presentado la jornada celebrada en el Grand Palladium Palace Ibiza Resort and Spa, ha añadido por su parte estar muy satisfecha de ser la primera empresa de la isla en impartir este tipo de formación interna, y ha concretado que “para nosotros es un honor poder formar parte de esta iniciativa en la que queremos daros las herramientas para que conozcáis los estadios de esta enfermedad y cómo detenerla a tiempo”.

En el marco de esta sesión informativa ha intervenido la cirujana de Can Misses, Guadalupe Moreno, quien ha desglosado los métodos de prevención del cáncer de mama insistiendo sobre todo en la necesidad de “realizarse mamografías cada dos años” para así, ayudar a los médicos a “poder diagnosticarlo en las fases iniciales”. La doctora ha aconsejado a las asistentes “que nosotras mismas nos palpemos y revisemos el pecho de forma periódica y que, aunque sea pequeño, también hay un porcentaje de hombres afectados por esta enfermedad”, por lo que ha extrapolado este consejo a toda la población. “El tabaquismo es un factor de riesgo, como también lo es una dieta alta en grasas saturadas”, por eso la cirujana de Can Misses ha hecho un llamamiento a los asistentes para que siempre “sigan una vida sana, en la que combinen una dieta correcta y deporte”.

‘Think Pink’

La presidenta de la asociación de Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer, Helen Watson, ha querido agradecer a Palladium Hotel Group haber acogido en sus instalaciones, durante este mes conmemorativo de la lucha contra el cáncer de mama, diferentes actividades incluidas en el programa ‘Think Pink’ en el que “se están recaudando fondos para nuestra asociación”.

Programa de Detección Precoz del Cáncer de Mama a tan solo un clic

Con motivo del mes de octubre dedicado a la sensibilización sobre el cáncer de mama, queríamos hacer un artículo en referencia al programa de ‘Detección Precoz del Cáncer de Mama’ que ha puesto a disposición de todas las mujeres residentes en las islas el Govern Balears a través de la página web del IbSalud.

El programa de ‘Detección Precoz de Cáncer de Mama’ se dirige a todas las mujeres que vivan en Balears y que tengan entre 50 y 69 años. Su objetivo es concienciar a la población sobre la importancia de vigilar, en esta franja de edad, las posibilidades de sufrir un cáncer y utilizar todas las herramientas de las que disponen para evitar padecer esta enfermedad, que suma alrededor de 22.000 nuevos cánceres de mama al año en España.

A través de la web www.ibsalud.es, quienes deseen someterse a una revisión deberán dirigirse al apartado de ‘Ciudadanía’, y al desplegarlo pinchar sobre la sección de ‘Salud’. Acto seguido deberán clicar en ‘Programas de Salud’ y después en el apartado de ‘Programa de Detección Precoz de Cáncer de Mama’. A continuación aparecerá un formulario a rellenar para poder escoger el día de la cita para someterse a un estudio mamográfico rutinario. Este estudio consiste en la realización de dos proyecciones (radiografías) de cada pecho y se recomienda a las mujeres acudir a realizarse dicha mamografía en un intervalo máximo de dos años.

Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer

Desde la asociación queremos transmitir la importancia de prevenir el cáncer, mirándose y cuidándose los senos de forma frecuente. Es necesario someterse a una revisión cada dos años para hacer una detección precoz del cáncer de mama.

IFCC celebra el próximo 11 de diciembre su gala de Navidad con actividades para toda la familia

La ONG pitiusa celebra esta cita solidaria cada dos años con una gran participación de voluntarios y patrocinadores que en 2014 atrajo a más de 3.500 visitantes.

Ibiza y Formentera contra el Cáncer, IFCC, celebra este domingo 11 de diciembre su Gran Fiesta de Navidad. Una cita que IFCC organiza una vez cada dos años y que tendrá lugar en el Recinto Ferial de Ibiza de 12.00 horas a 21.00 horas bajo el título “juntos contra el cáncer”. Helen Watson, presidenta de la Asociación, recuerda que “como cada año hemos preparado muchas sorpresas para toda la familia, destinadas a que personas de todas las edades y nacionalidades disfruten de un día lleno de diversión y colaborando con una buena causa”. La presidenta de IFCC ha querido agradecer al Consell Insular d´Eivissa y a FECOEF su apoyo “un año más en este gran evento con el que esperamos poder seguir financiando todos nuestros proyectos e impulsar nuevas iniciativas tan necesarias como estas durante 2017 en el marco de un contexto de esperanza, de armonía y de fiesta”.

Después de un año lleno de emoción, la ONG pitiusa cierra su 15 aniversario con esta gran fiesta de Navidad en la que no faltarán los espectáculos, juegos, un mercadillo con ropa y muebles, comida, una gran subasta y la visita de Papá Noel. Tras del éxito de la última edición, en la que participaron más de 3.500 personas, “esperamos poder igualar el número de visitantes y de donaciones, ya que tenemos muchos proyectos todavía por conseguir”, según expresa Watson.

IFCC trabaja en la actualidad junto con el Hospital Can Misses para crear un registro de tumores en Ibiza que se pondría en marcha a principios de 2018. Esta herramienta es una demanda por parte de los especialistas y de los pacientes que serviría para conocer exactamente la incidencia del cáncer en la isla y asentar protocolos en los tratamientos.

Gracias a los diferentes eventos y a las donaciones que IFCC ha recibido durante 2016, la Asociación ha ayudado en la lucha contra el cáncer en las Pitiusas y ha conseguido cerrar el Programa de Cribado de Cáncer de Colon, que comenzó como una iniciativa piloto en algunos municipios y que ahora cubre las islas de Ibiza y Formentera. El último paso de este Plan ha sido comprar un endoscopio para los pacientes del Hospital de Formentera, quienes desde este año ya no tienen que desplazarse a Can Misses para continuar con sus tratamientos.

Asimismo la Asociación Ibiza y Formentera Contra el Cáncer ha financiado diez sillas reclinables y cinco televisiones con auriculares y radio para los pacientes que reciben quimioterapia en el Hospital público de Ibiza. El último hito con la sanidad pitiusa ha sido la financiación de un fisioterapeuta para la nueva Unidad de Linfedema que trata ya esta patología, muy frecuente en las mujeres que han sido operadas de cáncer de mama. Además, IFCC también lleva a cabo campañas informativas y preventivas de el cáncer de pecho, pulmón, próstata, colon y para dejar de fumar, entre otras. Entre sus objetivos también se encuentra la ayuda económica a pacientes oncológicos y a sus familias en su día a día y en sus traslados.
