This Sunday, November 26th, the campaign “Mi amigo sin pelo” (My friend without hair) will take place, an event that seeks to help and raise awareness about childhood cancer in Puerto Vallarta.

The importance of this event lies in the fact that it also helps to show solidarity among the population, to raise funds, to share information and to spread sympathy.

In an exclusive interview with GST Medios, the president of the president of the Asociación Femenil Vallartense and director of the Canica Puerto Vallarta program, Evelia Basáñez Márquez, invited everyone to go to the arches of the Malecon on November 26th to help and learn more about the ailment.

"Awareness starts from the family, when you who arrive with your piggy bank, explain to them that there are people in the region with this disease who do not have the resources. The money should not come out of your pocket, it should be raising awareness. One peso, two pesos, ten pesos and the piggy bank fills up. Solidarity, when they arrive at the arches of the Malecon on November 26th for the campaign "Mi amigo sin pelo," they leave the collected resources, they spend time with the children and if they have more than 500 pesos in their piggy bank, they are given a commemorative t-shirt," he indicates.

"Mi amigo sin pelo" is an annual campaign that takes place on the last day of November and this year will be the fifteenth edition. It is the only massive fundraising campaign that CANICA has.

"We invite you to join "Mi amigo sin pelo." It is like a small Telethon, they can come and say 'here is a $100 donation', 'I come to shave my hair', 'I want my piggy bank', and not only to individuals. How nice it would be if they could say 'Here comes such-and-such restaurant because among its workers it collected a certain amount of money'. Everyone is invited. Join us, it is for our children. We will be there from 5:00 p.m. until the body can take it," concludes Doña Evelia.
