(7/13/2012)

The wife of Bali’s governor, Ayu Pastika, has issued praise and her support for the Bali Pink Ribbon project – a group of volunteers who raise funds and awareness in the battle against cancer.

As reported by Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post), “Ibu” Pastika said: 
“I truly appreciate the various activities that the Bali Pink Ribbon volunteers have done for this island and its people and I support their initiative to expand the movement’s coverage and program. I believe that we will be able to work together to create a bigger impact,”

Seeing the work of the Bali Pink Ribbon volunteers as complementing her husband’s work to improve public healthcare through the Bali Mandara Program, Ayu Pastika works tirelessly to provide health education to remote villages across the island.

The Bali Pink Ribbon program’s dedication to alleviating the incidence of breast cancer is seen by Ayu Pastika as filling a gap in public health care not yet addressed by the provincial health services.

The group of volunteers educates women on the dangers of cancer and the treatments and cures now available with early detection.

In the past, woman have feared what they saw as a “death sentence” of a cancer diagnosis by refusing medical treatment until their cancer were in an advanced and largely untreatable stage of development.

Teaching woman about self-examination for breast cancer can detect the illness at an early stage when treatment is less expensive and more effective.

Based on figures from the American National Cancer Database, patient treated in stage 0 or stage 1 of breast cancer have survival rates of more than 83%. Meanwhile, patients at stage 4 of cancer have only a 15% rate of survival.

Emphasizing the role volunteers, such a the Pink Ribbons Group play in Bali’s health care, Ayu Pastika said: 

“Women play an important role in developing the overall health of the community. Housewives, in particular, could teach critical aspects in maintaining health and preventing disease to their children. In fact, on this island, the mothers are still the primary caregivers for their sick children.”
