Tahiti, November 2, 2023. On the occasion of the closing event of “Pink October” held in Baufai Park last Saturday, the President of the Anti-Cancer League – Polynesia Committee, Natasha Helme, received the hand of visual artist Hina Noi with a check for $30,000. francs, which is equivalent to a third of the sales of her “INKredibles Women” ink series dedicated to people suffering from cancer.

During the closing ceremony, Natasha Helme was kind enough to give us a short look at the month of October dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer, the number one cancer affecting women in Polynesia. “This year, the results are positive.

Regarding this donation, I thank Hina Noi as well as the many artists who were willing to participate in our approach, because these donations are mainly intended for our patients, but also for our healthy population. We focus especially on prevention and information, and all that Collecting it allows us to reach the population so that everyone has information about the disease and knows how to prevent it.
