Launch event at the British Embassy
On 21st April 2015 the Pink Train Foundation’s launch event took place at the British Embassy. The Foundation started its work in autumn last year and was officially registered as a charity in December 2014. The Foundation was formed in order to provide modern support for women in Latvia diagnosed with breast cancer: namely, individual consultations with a psychologist and sessions with a physiotherapist. The Pink Train Foundation organises various events to raise funds to help those women who need these services.
The launch event was well-attended by supporters “which proves that this subject is very topical. In Latvia, unfortunately, the State does not finance this kind of rehabilitation for women with breast cancer. Whereas in countries such as England, Sweden or America this type of support for patients and even their entire families is provided by similar organisations or is paid for by the State” explained the founder of the Pink Train Foundation, Zinta Uskalis.
In his speech, Dr Arvīds Irmejs, Head of the Breast Care Unit at Paul Stradini University Hospital emphasised that any kind of support is important from families and from professionals. It has been proved that support and assurances that help will be provided are very important factors for more successful recovery.
