The president of the association, Dr. Roula Farah-Sayad who has given a very touching glimpse of the association’s goals and successes until present, has also mentioned the importance of prevention of certain cancers, such as cancer of the cervix against which a new vaccine is available from the age of 10 years. In her speech, she warmly thanked the committee of ladies and sponsors.
Mrs. Zeina Sayegh, the Coordinator of the Brunch, has thanked the 500 people who responded to the call “Be Their luck and make the difference!”
Finally, Dr. Noha Bejjani-Doueihi, the member of the medical committee, has deeply impressed the ladies with her poem describing the CHANCE history.
A trophy offered by SIOM (Mrs. Jeanette Baroud) has been delivered by Mrs. Anne-Marie Nasr to Mr. Amine Dib for his project “on the road charity”.
Mr. Dib, director of the SPA at the hotel Intercontinental Phoenicia has skirted the coast from Beirut to Turkey solo on his bicycle to obtain funds supporting children with cancer.
Alberto Habib has charmed all the ladies playing on his violin and the singers Carole Hobeika and Nader Khoury enchanted the guests with their beautiful voice and music ..
