J&J Philippines Leads The Fight Against Prostate Cancer Through Better Awareness And Education

 

Working towards “a future where the disease is a thing of the past” – to take a step towards this goal, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Philippines, will again be supporting the initiatives of the Philippine Urological Association (PUA). For 2022, PUA is ramping up education on one specific type of cancer that both patients and healthcare personnel still lack ample awareness of prostate cancer, one of the top five cancers affecting Filipino males across the country (WHO Globocan Report 2020 - Philippines, March 2021).

“A lot of prostate cancer cases are detected late because of this lack of education and awareness, but prostate cancer can be ‘curable’ if diagnosed early enough,” says Dr. Erwin Benedicto, J&J Southeast Asia portfolio medical director. “There are also new therapies now available, even to advanced prostate cancer patients, that do not require chemotherapy.”

Evidence of this can be seen in the comparison of prostate cancer mortality rates between developed and less developed countries in the Asia-Pacific region, adds Benedicto. According to the World Health Organization, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan have seen a steady decline in their prostate cancer mortality rates, while rates in the Philippines and even Thailand have largely increased over recent years.

“Refinements to treatment and management of early-stage prostate cancers, and easier access
to these treatments in more developed countries would be the key drivers to lower mortality rates in these developed countries,” Benedicto adds.

Here in the Philippines, Dr. Aristotle Bernard M. Roque, 2022 President of the Philippine Urological Association says that the early signs and symptoms of prostate cancer are often mistaken for signs of aging, which explains why most cases detected are already in the advanced stages.

“A significant number of elderly male patients are hesitant on getting a prostate examination, even when it is recommended in executive check-ups. DRE or digital rectal examination is an accepted standard and readily available way of screening for prostate cancer,” adds Roque.
In terms of public programs and policies, a national information campaign for prostate cancer has yet to be initiated, like the ones being rolled out for breast and lung cancer. Advanced prostate cancer can also be challenging to treat as it tends to progress quicker, and treatments for these stages are not typically covered by PhilHealth.

“Novel treatments for advanced prostate cancer are also not part of the drug formulary so these
medicines cannot be availed of at government facilities, only chemotherapy is available,” explains Roque. “Not all patients would tolerate chemotherapy well, especially if the patient is already weak.”

In time for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month this September, J&J Philippines is providing support to the PUA’s Cancer Committee to help lessen the burden of this disease on Filipino families. Last September 10, a free online forum was held via Facebook Live (@puaprostatecancerawareness), where topics such as prostate cancer signs and symptoms, risk factors, and available support were discussed. This was then followed by free online consultations for men 50 years old and above, conducted by different institutions specializing in urologic care on September 17.

Aside from these activities, free training for primary care physicians on Prostate Cancer Early Detection and Screening will be provided by PUA throughout the whole of September (visit their Facebook page or www.puaweb.org for more information).

“Armed with the right knowledge, we can fight prostate cancer and improve the survival of those suffering from this disease,” says Benedicto.

25 Years of Success: How Jolly Has Remained A Market Leader in the Packaged Food Industry

 


The food industry is a tough market to crack in the Philippines. With so many new competitors vying to place first in consumer awareness, it takes a well-formulated and executed business formula to come out on top in such a competitive landscape. 

A perfect example of a brand that has mastered this kind of standout marketing leadership is Jolly, a packaged fruits and vegetable brand under Fly Ace Corporation. Backed by heritage and a steadfast dedication to fulfilling the needs of its market, Jolly has retained its position of being the leader of its niche twenty-five years since its launch. Now, the brand continues to gain success by following a simple formula: staying true to its consumer promise.  

“The vision of Jolly is to be part of every Filipino household,” shares Larry Cochanco, one of the directors of Fly Ace Corporation. “We want to develop a trusted brand that is delicious and nutritious for the common Filipino to use.” By providing fresh and nutritious ingredients that are easily accessible to everyone, Jolly gives consumers the capacity to be more creative in the kitchen.  

This consumer promise is rooted in the history of the brand itself. Lucio S. Cochanco Sr. and Ederlina Cochanco established Jolly General Merchandise in the 1970s with the vision of providing high-quality products that are accessible to Filipinos. Together with their children Jun, Larry, and Louie, the family launched Fly Ace Corporation in 1997.  

Since then, Jolly has remained focused and consistent in meeting the needs of its market. What set it up for success, in particular, is its discernment of the needs of Filipino families. The brand understands that having nutritious, delicious, and convenient meals is what every homemaker wants access to, and they have remained steadfast in meeting this need despite the ever-changing market landscape. By learning the aspirations, challenges, and things that delight their market, Jolly was able to come up with innovations that became helpful to the daily lives of their consumers.  

Jolly’s commitment to its brand vision has earned them a steady lead in the market. The brand is now the top choice of many because of its “siksik sa laman” value, the quality of its products, and its accessibility. Moreover, it remains to be the undisputed market leader for the canned vegetable category according to the Kantar Worldpanel Household Panel Study. In terms of consumer awareness, Jolly remains to hold the lion’s share in the market. 

So what's next then for a 25-year-strong market leader like Jolly? According to Cochanco, the brand will remain focused on delivering the consumer promise that they've fulfilled in the past decades. “After 25 years, the plan is for the Jolly brand to be available everywhere. We believe that eating healthy, nutritious, and delicious food should be accessible to Filipinos. We want all Filipino families to be creative with their recipes and make their families more Jolly.” As he succinctly puts it, “Yan ang Jolly Love.”

6th SEABCS: ICANSERVE To Launch An Online Manual For Breast Cancer Patients

 




Alya Honasan, a breast cancer survivor, revealed the cover of the ICANSERVE Patient Manual. The Patient Manual will be launched officially on the last day of the 6th Southeast Asian Breast Cancer Symposium (SEABCS) happening on September 23-25. It will be downloadable for free at the ICANSERVE website. Looking on is ICANSERVE president Nikoy de Guzman.

Philippines-based ICANSERVE Foundation, Inc. launches its online Manual for breast cancer patients on the last day of the 6th Southeast Asia Breast Cancer Symposium (SEABCS), to be held virtually from September 23-25, 2022.

ICANSERVE’s comprehensive and engaging Manual is designed to guide breast cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers throughout every step of their journey, from understanding their diagnosis to living beyond cancer. Written entirely by breast cancer survivors, the Breast Cancer Patient’s Manual conversationally delivers vital information to help patients feel less overwhelmed and intimidated.

A source of information and encouragement, the Manual combines information gleaned from studies and established sources, such as the American Cancer Society, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University, Philippine Cancer Society, and more, as well as individual experiences and anecdotes from breast cancer survivors. It covers a wide range of topics, from the medical (understanding treatment options, managing side effects), to the personal (how to tell your family and friends), to the practical (financing cancer treatment). “We made sure to tell real stories, in a language and manner that every survivor or advocate can relate to,” says Manual’s editor Alya B. Honasan. “For every member of the editorial team, it was all about reaching out to sisters who needed help.”

ICANSERVE goes back to its roots with this project. Founded in 1999 by four breast cancer survivors—Kara Magsanoc-Alikpala, Crisann Celdran, Becky Fuentes, and Bet Lazatin—its first project was a printed guidebook that was distributed for free in the days when information on breast cancer was much harder to come by. The foundation has since evolved into one of the Philippines’ most active cancer patient advocacy groups, taking part in policy-making and institutionalizing breast cancer control programs.

The Manual will be available for free as a downloadable book after the launch. The SEABCS, hosted for the first time in the Philippines by ICANSERVE and Global Focus on Cancer, was previously held in Vietnam (2016), Myanmar (2017), Malaysia (2018), Thailand (2019), and Indonesia (2021- virtual conference).

Join the conversation. Registration is free. Register for the virtual conference at https://seabcsphilippines.ph/

ABOUT SEABCS

The Southeast Asian Breast Cancer Symposium (SEABCS) is a gathering of the region’s cancer survivors, patient advocates, health professionals, researchers, and policymakers in an event to exchange ideas, share successful strategies, the latest in breast cancer, as well as the many challenges that face the breast cancer community on a personal, local and, national, regional and international level.

ABOUT ICANSERVE
The ICanServe Foundation is a Philippine-based advocacy group of breast cancer survivors and volunteers that co-creates breast cancer control programs with local government as part of its initiative to promote early breast cancer detection, access to accurate diagnosis and timely treatment, survivorship care, palliative care, hospice care, and patient navigation.

MONKEYPOX: MUST KNOW FACTS

 


Covid- 19 is still here, but a new virus threatens us again. Yes, I'm talking about Monkeypox.

As of August 22, we have 4 reported cases of Monkeypox in the Philippines but the information about the virus remains largely unclear to many Filipinos. 

Although experts think that Monkeypox will unlikely become a pandemic, the cure and nature of the virus give the public heightened fear and anxiety. 

Philcare recently held a webinar with the help of an infectious disease expert, Dr. Christoper John N. Tibayan, RMT, MD FPCP DPSMID,  to shed light on this health threat, including how to prevent and treat it.

What is Monkeypox? 

Monkeypox is a virus usually transmitted from animals to people. However with the current outbreak right now, there's a transmission from one person to another. 

Monkeypox was first discovered in Asiatic monkeys found originally in tropical rainforests in Africa. Squirrels and rats can also be sources of the said virus. 

The usual symptoms of monkeypox infection in humans are fever, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash that forms blisters and then crusts over. However, some people could present asymptomatically or with no symptoms at all. The time from exposure to onset of symptoms ranges from five to twenty-one days. The duration of symptoms is typically two to four weeks.




Monkeypox belongs to the Poxviridae family, the same family virus as cowpox and smallpox. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of August 19, 2022, there are about 41,000 cases worldwide. Monkeypox can be transmitted from animal to human (primary infection) and human to human (secondary infection). Transmission is spread through skin to skin contact,  respiratory droplets, lesion materials, body fluids, contaminated materials, and surfaces that were touched or used by the case. 

According to Dr. Tibayan, Monkeypox is not considered a sexually transmitted disease, but it is often transmitted through close and sustained physical contact. Such can include sexual contact with those who have rashes or open lesions.


It is important to isolate if you think that the rash looks like that of monkeypox and consult your doctors for proper guidance.

I know most of us are worried about how this virus affects us physically and if our HMO provider will cover this type of condition.

So if you want to ensure you're prepared this time, like me, log on to www.philcare.com.ph and choose from Philcare's affordable Prepaid Health Plans suited for you and your family's needs. Have the peace of mind that your HMO has your back!

PhilCare understands that healthcare goes a long way. They know that achieving overall wellness requires focus on many aspects of life, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. This is why they come up with health plans designed to cover the distinct health needs of Filipinos. Along with this, PhilCare is taking advantage of the rapid technological advancements to ensure the quality and ease of customer experience.

Today’s Classics : Uniqlo's Fall/Winter 2022 Collection



Japanese global apparel retailer UNIQLO redefines what classics are with the launch of its Fall/Winter 2022 collection. Dubbed Today’s Classics, the new collection of LifeWear is filled with wardrobe staples that have been reinvented to adapt to the needs of today’s lifestyle.

“There is a reason why our LifeWear pieces such as the tweed jacket, trench coat, or cashmere sweater are loved through the years. They are designed well and effectively serve their purpose. UNIQLO, however, believes that even these classics can evolve with the times. That’s the inspiration behind this season’s collection,” says Geraldine Sia, UNIQLO Philippines’ COO.


For Fall/Winter 2022, UNIQLO has designed warmer and lighter jackets, water-repellent coats, and knitwear made using *WHOLEGARMENT® technology. Emphasizing sustainability, this new collection features denims that require much less water during production, and jackets and fleeces made from recycled plastic bottles.


*WHOLEGARMENT is a registered trademark of SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD.




Below are some of the highlights of Today’s Classics:



OUTERWEAR

UNIQLO has expanded its collection of outerwear to suit a wide range of lifestyles and settings, from shirt jackets to chic wool coats.


Women’s Ultra Light Down Jacket

The Ultra Light Down Jacket has been redesigned to make it more fashionable. Now lighter and softer but still durable, the water-repellent coating protects the wearer from rainy days, while the pocketable feature allows it to be stored when not in use.


Women’s Corduroy Cropped Jacket

The cropped length in a boxy fit gives this jacket a sleek look, but the relaxed fit and dropped shoulders make it cozy to wear. Its classic corduroy fabric is washed for a softer look.


Women’s Fluffy Yarn Fleece
