With the aim of raising awareness among the Nayarit population about the timely diagnosis and prevention of childhood cancer, the Nayarit DIF System, chaired by Dr. Beatriz Estrada Martínez, carried out various activities among all its staff, highlighting a conference for the workers, with the theme, "Childhood Cancer Alarm Data," in addition, the formation of a golden human bow was carried out.

Within the framework of the commemoration of the International Day to Fight Childhood Cancer, held on February 15, the head of social assistance in the state emphasized the importance of carrying out actions that help prevent childhood cancer, since currently, each year more than 400 thousand girls, boys and adolescents up to 19 years old are diagnosed with this disease worldwide.

“It is about raising awareness and making everyone aware of the problems that girls, boys and adolescents go through, but not only they are going through this problem, the family, the social context that surrounds all these children, I think that The most important thing of all this is to achieve prevention, being able to establish a timely diagnosis and treatment, it is how we are going to ensure that many children are cured, relieved, and have a normal survival.”

Beatriz Estrada Martínez also highlighted the main objective that the Heart of Your Government has in the face of this disease: “let us bring to all of them the heart that we have here in the institution, that heart that has to see them with love, with affection, with dedication and Wishing you have a happy and healthy life. The DIF is precisely there to support and help, let us be sensitive to this pain in children and let us make them smile again and that in their little eyes we can once again see the illusion of living, of living with the family and of living well, of living healthy.”

The president of the Nayarit DIF System, accompanied by the general director, Mauro Lugo Izaguirre, and all the institution's staff, made a human bow with gold clothing, which represents the strength and resistance that boys and girls can have in the face of this illness. To conclude, both authorities thanked Rocío Peña Samaniego, pediatric oncologist from the State Cancer Center, for her presentation and participation.
