World Cancer Day Film Event
On Saturday 4 February 2012 KEHPCA will join forces with the Kenya Cancer Association to celebrate World Cancer Day 2012 with a special film screening event in Nairobi.
Life Before Death is a multi-award winning documentary about terminally ill patients, their families, and the extraordinary health care professionals fighting to change the culture of medicine to be more focused on care, rather than exclusively on cure. It is an intimate hopeful and life-affirming collection of stories about living well and dying better. The film travels to 11 countries, and through the eyes of patients and their families we discover the inherent humanity that empowers the best of us to care for those beyond cure.
The event will take place at Braeburn School, Gitanga Road, at 2.30pm. The event will also include the launch of Kenya’s World Cancer Day theme song ‘I Fight For You’ featuring Abbi Nyinza, Ilaria Della Bidia and Charlie Lustman.
The event is free to attend, and no booking is required.
The Braeburn School café will be open before and after the film screening.
World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control, with an aim to help save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about cancer, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the disease.
We hope you can join us!
