I am passing this along. I have no other information other than what is contained below!
Let’s fight all together against breast cancer:
Clinica Biblica, together with the help of the union of companies who are committed to the well-being of Costaricans, was able to equip a mobile bus (LAZOS campaign) with the necessary equipment to make mammographies “on wheels”.
The municipality of Atenas, the chamber of commerce of Atenas and the Association of Development of Atenas Center have contacted the program “LAZOS” in order to participate in this campaign and to give in Atenas the opportunity to over 300 women (over 40 years or younger than 40 with a family background of cancer) in socio-economical vulnerable conditions, to have an access to a specialized medical revision and a mammography.
Each mammography has a cost of 30.000 Colones. A minimum of 300 mammography’s are planned. The total cost of 300 mammographies is 9.000.000 Colones from which 50% (4,5 Mio. Colones) will be donated by Teletica Canal 7 and Clinica Biblica.
The municipality of Atenas will donate 1.500.000 Colones for this campaign, but to be able to obtain the whole amount and to make this project become reality, we need the help and collaboration of our community as well. Therefore we’re kindly asking every business owner and every individual person to help and to make this project possible. There will be a banner with the names of all sponsors (business owners) for two weeks next to the bus.
The donations will only be collected by the Association of development (Asociacion de Desarrollo Integral de Atenas centro, cedula juridical 3-002-08706623) the account number of this association is 302-0001337-4 and the client account is 15201302000133742. It is very important that, when making a transfer, to indicate clearly that it is a “donation for the LAZOS Campaign”. If we can collect the necessary amount, the campaign will take place after 11th of August 2014.
Thank you very much. We appreciate in advance your support and collaboration.
In the name of:
Municipality of Atenas,
Chamber of Commerce of Atenas and
Association of development of Atenas Center.
