AC Health celebrates 4th Anniversary with cancer patients

The Amoranto Sports Complex ground was filled with its unusual group of guests one Saturday morning.  It is because the Ayala Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (AC Health), in celebration of its 4th Anniversary this July, has launched SOAR, a community family day for children diagnosed with cancer.

AC Health has partnered with Kythe Foundation, a non-government organization, which provides Child Life services and psychosocial support to children with chronic illnesses.

Over 500 participants, including 60 cancer patients and their families, and volunteers from Ayala group came together for an afternoon of kite flying, games, and entertainment performances.

AC Health President and CEO, Paolo Borromeo, said that the anniversary activity aims to encourage volunteerism across the Ayala group in support of AC Health’s vision of expanding access to healthcare.

Last month, AC Health announced its plan to build a 100-bed, comprehensive cancer hospital in Metro Manila.  Its goal is to provide high-quality cancer care services, at a more affordable price.  Cancer is now the third leading cause of death in the Philippines.

Cancer treatment is difficult for many Filipinos, and in this event, we want to take the time to celebrate family and community amidst such difficulties.  It is also our way of connecting with patients and their families, so that we can make sure our cancer hospital is responsive to their needs.

SOAR is also in line with Ayala Corporation’s 185th year celebration.
