ManilaMed launches new State-of-the-Art Cancer Care Unit

ManilaMed lives up to their tagline: One care makes the difference!

When one member of the family has acquired the Big C, everyone in the family is affected. The mere mention of the word Cancer is enough to scare people. With the crucial times we now have where cancer cells become active more than ever, it’s even scarier to think how much we need to allot as saved money for our hospital confinement if we do not have health insurance. The good news is hope is still within reach. ManilaMed, one of the country’s leading hospitals, recently opened a newly constructed Cancer Care Center. They offer holistic cancer facility with state-of-the-art equipment as well as fresh approach in treating cancer patients. 

Purple Plum Fairy was invited during the press briefing at ManilaMed last month where the expert doctors discussed the future of cancer in the country. They also gave us a glimpse of the procedures for newly diagnosed admitted patients, the benefits of multi-disciplinary team approach for each cancer patient, the advancement and innovative technology for radiotherapy, the side-effects and complications that may arise using their Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy Treatment.

Robinson's Flash Sale at Ayala South Park from July 14 to 16, 2017

Can you think of a shopping experience that you had in the past six months or so that was especially great, in that the experience created delight and surprise for you in any way? I just did today when I visited the Robinson's Flash Sale at the newly opened Ayala South Park mall in Muntinlupa City. 

From someone who's practically from the North, it seems pretty impractical for me to travel all the way from my area in Project 4 [near Cubao] to this Southern part of the metro, right? Never mind if I had to pay my Uber pool driver worth P801 pesos for my Friday morning one-way fare. I also didn't mind the usual hellish Metro Manila traffic. As they say in the vernacular, "Pikit-mata akong nagbayad kay 'Kuya Driver'' because I  had really wanted to check out the Robinson's 3-Day Flash Sale at Ayala South Park mall. It was 'salary day' for most young professionals which makes it all the more difficult to commute from my place to Ayala South Park. But like I had been saying, I really didn't mind at all. Everyone wanted to get their savings on, right? I was lucky enough to have gone early to where shopaholics and bargain hunters should be but sans the huge crowd in some malls that offers sale and discounts.

The sale at the activity center

I have good news too for shoppers who have BPI cards like their AMORE cards, BPI credit cards as well as those who happen to have Robinson's Rewards Cards because they've got perks and freebies for a minimum purchase during the entire flash sale at participating Robinson's owned establishments like Daiso, Toys 'R Us, Robinson's Supermarket, Robinson's Department Store, South Star Drug and Handyman. The flash sale is exclusively for the card holders I've mentioned above. But if you don't have the Robinson's Rewards cards, fret not! You can purchase them for only Php100 on those three-days [from July 14 to 16]. Regular price is at Php150 for the membership card. That means, you get to save Php50 for joining if you avail of the card on those dates.
