February 15, marks childhood cancer awareness day, every year around 8000 children get diagnosed with Cancer in Pakistan. To commemorate this significant day, PCB took the conscientious initiative to promote awareness for the cause by dedicating a day in PSL series. On Saturday, February 27th the stadium was adorned with gold colored items, golden wickets and caps worn by every PSL staff member captivated the attention of viewers at home. A total of 500 golden ribbons were distributed amongst players and audience to stand in solidarity for childhood hood cancer.
PCB fulfilled the wishes of our two Leukemia patients by giving an opportunity to watch the match with their families. Muhammad Maaz (aged 5) and Muhammad Bin Khalid (aged 7) attended two matches between; Multan Sultans – Karachi Kings and Islamabad United &-Peshawar Zalmi.
For the last three years PCB has willingly dedicated a day to acknowledge the significance of childhood cancer and working to support the cause. Our patients and their families were given VIP treatment from being seated at the front on comfortable Sofas to getting a chance to play with Quetta Gladiator ambassadors Bilal Ashraf and Fawad Alam on the field. Moreover, PCB bid our children goodbye with signed caps and T-shirts for them to remember this day by. Patients back at the hospital were not forgotten as PCB sent back signed caps by players to lift their spirits and help them get through this difficult time.
