This year, the Philippines’ premier healthcare facility has tied up with HEADS by volu-med salon, which provides solutions for hair problems through hair services integrating quality hair systems and wigs. HEADS by volu-med salon will provide free haircut and styling to those who will donate to the program on June 1. Donated hair should at least be nine (9) inches long. Any hair type, including gray and white hair, will be accepted.

“Every strand of donated hair counts, and so we encourage everyone to join us on June 1,” said Ma. Felina Rosario P. Cruz, MD, Unit Head, Cancer Center Supportive Care Services. “With our country’s constant warm weather and school about to start for some, there are many reasons for people to go for shorter hair. Best of all is that they can get a free haircut on us while making patients happy and bringing back their confidence.”

“People with cancer have to cope not only with the emotionally and physically taxing treatment and its side-effects, including hair loss,” said Victor K. Gozali, MD, Co-Director of the Cancer Center. “This hair donation drive is our small way of giving support to these brave patients.”

For inquiries and registration, please call the Cancer Center at +632.8888.999 local 7122. You can also email, or visit

The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day

Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanayinay‘naymama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care for the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Women all over the world are suffering from a health condition that they themselves may not even be aware of.

This silent burden is called female sexual dysfunction (FSD), which pertains to a persistent, recurrent problem with sexual response, desire or orgasm.

FSD is often overlooked or ignored, largely because society still frowns upon the idea of women being in tune and in touch with their own bodies, especially regarding reproductive and sexual health.
