HRCPP takes action in celebration of Easter for patients and their companions
Often, the celebration of Easter is associated with only one thing: chocolates. However, the date is linked to the rebirth of love, faith and hope in people’s hearts. With the intention of recovering the feeling of faith in the patients and their companions, the Hospital Regional do Câncer de Presidente Prudente (HRCPP) carried out an action in commemoration of Easter tomorrow this morning (17).
Pediatric patients participated in a symbolic party, beginning at a film session held in the auditorium of the institution. After the film, volunteers organized a treasure hunt, followed by a morning snack offered by the Association of Support to Cancer Carriers (AAPC) – a partnership institution in the provision of care services to cancer patients. In addition, adult patients and their companions received all day memories – kits with chocolates – to symbolize the commemorative date.
According to Daniel Teixeira, an analyst for marketing at HRCPP, who is one of the organizers of the action, the main objective is to preserve the faith of patients and their families. “We know the emotional burden of facing cancer. Therefore, actions like this are idealized with a single goal: the restoration of hope, “he says.
This mobilization also took over the community. About 5,160 bonbons were collected and used to set up kits for adult / pediatric patients and hospital attendants. In addition, children received donations of 110 Easter eggs and 80 chocolate baskets – donated spontaneously by the community and partner institutions.
