About the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer
Under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen, the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer provides breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for underprivileged breast cancer patients from across Thailand. Her Majesty has described the centre as “a sanctuary for women in Thailand”. The Peninsula Bangkok is a long-time supporter of the Queen Sirikit Centre, and its world-leading Pink Park Village in Bangkok, which is the world’s first non-profit holistic care and diagnostic centre and offers a hospice and convalescence home and a day-care and activity centre for breast cancer patients.
Pink Park Village provides comprehensive cancer care by an experienced team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, pharmacists and nutritionists. It has invested in advanced imaging technologies, a cutting-edge laboratory and molecular tests that were previously beyond the resources of any single institution in Thailand.
“Our vision for Pink Park Village is to be a place of hope and care, and a genuine sanctuary for all women in need,” says Dr. Kris Chatamra, Director of the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer and Founder and Chairman of the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation. “We plan to establish it as an advanced diagnostic leader that will be a benchmark for the region,”
In addition to supporting Pink Park Village, donations from the Peninsula in Pink campaigns have contributed to transforming the second floor of Chulalongkorn Hospital into a world-leading centre for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for underprivileged patients. The Centre uses 3D cone-beam computer tomography equipment, which is the first in the world, and the only breast cancer magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) dedicated for disadvantaged patients in Thailand. MRI scanning creates images from various angles of soft tissue parts of the body that are difficult to view using other imaging tests, and has improved the speed and accuracy of diagnosis for patients in need while removing the worry of high expenses.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women in Thailand, with one in 10 Thai women likely to face the challenge during her lifetime—but more than half of patients do not have access to adequate care. Many patients have had to face recovery or death from cancer in abject squalor. Often, these patients have been forced to stay in hospital beds because they simply have nowhere to go, thereby blocking new patients from being diagnosed and treated more quickly.
