Statement of Cong. Geraldine B. Roman on Laoag City's Memorandum in support of the Anti-Discrimination Bill:

Cong. Geraldine B. Roman, Representative of the First District of Bataan, commended the Laoag City government for prohibiting the use of the terms "bakla," "tomboy," transgender and the like in reference to the members of the LGBT community. Under a Memorandum which was recently released by the City Administrator of Laoag City, all heads of offices and employees of the city are prohibited from using ANY derogatory words to address, call, and describe co-employees who are members of the LGBT community. Any employee of the city hall who is caught violating the Order will be charged administratively for conduct unbecoming, disrespect and insubordination. Roman applauded the Memorandum as one which will stop labelling and discrimination based on gender.
Roman, upon hearing of the news from this northern City said, "This is a giant step in the direction towards gender equality in this country. It definitely upholds the dignity of the members of the LGBT community. Labels do not define who we are. As human beings, we are much more than our sexual orientation and gender identity." The solon from Bataan lauded Mayor Chevylle Fariñas and the entire city government for taking this bold action to show support to the Anti-Discrimination Bill.

We can only become our best selves if we embrace who we truly are. I am happy for you, Jake Zyrus! (Photo: Rolling Stone)

The Cancer Treatment Center Bill, among others, aims to manage the psychosocial and rehabilitation needs of cancer patients AND their families and provide programs that include assistance to cancer survivors.


That the proposed Cancer Treatment Center Bill will also house the National Cancer Management Program? This important piece of would-be legislation does not focus on cancer treatment alone but also on scientific research and cancer management as well. One of the objectives of the bill is to promote, encourage, engage, and assist in scientific research on matters related to cancer.

Ang cancer ay isa sa mga nangungunang sanhi ng pagkamatay ng mga Pilipino. Ang karaniwang cancer sa mga lalaki ay liver, colon, prostate, at stomach cancer, pati na rin ang leukemia. Ang karaniwang cancer naman sa mga babae ay breast, cervix, lung, at ovarian cancer.

Halos 300,000 kada taon, 800 kada araw, at 33 kada oras ang namamatay sa Pilipinas dahil sa cancer. Ilan pa ang magdudusa sa mga sakit na ito bago maipasa ang Cancer Treatment Center Bill?

Lahat tayo ay may kakilalang nabiktima na ng cancer. Noong 2012, naitala ng World Health Organization na halos 14 milyon ang nagkaroon ng cancer at 8.2 milyon ang namatay dahil dito. Inaasahan na tataas ito mula 14 milyon hanggang 22 milyon sa susunod na dalawang dekada, kaya importante na suportahan nating ang Cancer Treatment Center Bill para matulungan natin ang mga cancer patients sa ating bansa.

The Cancer Treatment Center Bill will provide for the continued improvement of the Cancer Treatment Center and its facilities, including the training of its personnel, so that the highest professional levels of patient care may be maintained in accordance with the requirements of the DOH.
Ang bill na ito ay makakatulong sa paghuhusay ng ating mga healthcare professionals na nag-aaruga ng mga cancer patients sa ating bansa.

Sa pagtayo ng mga Cancer Treatment Centers sa buong Pilipinas, maari nating mabawasan ang mga cancer cases sa ating bansa sa pamamagitan ng sapat na edukasyon tungkol sa cancer: kung anu-ano ang mga sanhi nito, kung paano ito maiiwasan at ang mga posibilidad upang ito ay magamot pa.

Mahigit 98,200 na tao ang nagkakaroon ng cancer kada-taon sa bansa. Sa pagtayo ng mga Cancer Treatment Centers sa buong Pilipinas, matutulungan natin ang ating mga kapatid na nangangailangan ng pag-aaruga at gamot para sa cancer.
