Embedded in the missions of the Association of Friends of the National Cancer Institute, Hospital 57357 and the Children’s Cancer Hospital Foundation 57357 is their commitment to serving and taking care of the community by leading in cancer awareness, early detection and prevention. Since its inception, the 57357 Institution has undertaken a number of health awareness TV campaigns and school programs around topics such as passive smoking hazards and “Home without cancer” health tips and eating habits guidelines.
Moreover, it is the mandate of the newly formed board of the Association of Friends of the National Cancer Institute (AFNCI) to restore to the association its preponderant role in educating the public about cancer disease, its early detection and prevention. As such, thanks to the support of Egypt Cancer Network 57357, AFNCI which is one of its main beneficiaries and affiliates is embarking for the coming three months on an intensive TV campaign aiming at educating the public on cancer prevention and healthy living guidelines. The awareness campaign which started on May 29th, 2013 with an anti-smoking message, will also tackle the themes of bad eating habits and food preparation and how to avoid them. Both Egypt Cancer Network and Hospital 57357 are supporting this major campaign.
