Anniversary of Eva Perón

Today marks the anniversary of the death of Eva María Duarte de Perón (7 May 1919 – 26 July 1952).

Eva Perón (usually referred to as Evita) was the wife of Argentine President Juan Perón (1895–1974). She was the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death from cervical cancer in 1952 at age 33.

It doesn’t need to be this way:  Help the PICCSI Project screen and treat women of the Pacific Islands for cervical cancer with a small tax-deductible donation today. Continue reading “Anniversary of Eva Perón”

Come and join Run Melbourne 2018 to raise money for PICCSI and help treat cervical cancer in the Pacific.

There are three different events to choose from:

  • 5km walk or run
  • 10km run
  • Half marathon

Run Melbourne is a great way to get fit, see the sights of Melbourne and raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time.

PICCSI is entering a team. We’re probably all going to enter the 5km event…so there are no excuses: come and join us for a great day with plenty of entertainment along the way.

ABC Radio – Cervical Cancer Screening News Item

PICCSI / ABC Pacific Beat New Item

ABC Radio this week featured an item on Cervical Cancer screening in the Pacific.

It centered on the self-testing approach and highlighted the fact that each test costs approximately US$17.

As part of the PICCSI (Pacific Island Cervical Cancer Screening Initiative) Pilot Program, this test (and treatment!) is being provided free of charge to women in Fiji.

Human papilloma virus is the major cause of Cervical Cancer and vaccination programs are yet to be implemented in the Pacific Island nations.

The PICCSI project is scheduled to run for the first time in August 2018, but needs help from donors to fund its spread across the Pacific.

Listen to the news item on ABC’s Pacifc Beat program and support PICCSI by making a tax deductible donation or attending our Ocean’s 8 movie fundraiser.

Ocean’s 8 Fundraiser

Want to see a great new movie…like Ocean’s 8?

Want to make a donation to a deserving charity…like PICCSI? (the Pacific Island Cervical Cancer Screening Initiative)

Why not do both? At the same time? And get a warm and fuzzy feeling from saving women’s lives at the same time?

Proceeds from a screening of Ocean’s 8 at Palace Cinema, Westgarth Cinema on June 21 go to the PICCSI Project. PICCSI screens and treats cervical cancer in the Pacific Islands.

Australian Aid

Today PICCSI would like to thank the Australian Government and Australian Aid for their backing of the PICCSI Project in August 2018.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has agreed to provide PICCSI some assistance through their Direct Aid Program (DAP). The assistance will help with our cervical cancer screening and treatment programme in the Western Division of Fiji in August 2018.

The purpose of Australian Aid is to promote Australia’s national interests by contributing to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region.

It pursues this purpose by focusing on two development outcomes: supporting private sector development and strengthening human development.

New PICCSI Logo!

The PICCSI project has a new logo!

Many thanks must go to Alys Martin from Alys Martin Design for her very professional job and her personal time spent designing the fantastic logo.

All of the proposals Alys produced were slick and any one of them would have made for a great logo.

So, the next time you or your business are looking for some great looking design work, contact Alys.
