Cancer is a word that evokes many emotions. In the face of this formidable adversary, the pursuit of precision medicine emerges as a beacon of hope.

Precision oncology tailors cancer treatments to individual patients based on their genetic make-up. This approach promises greater efficacy, fewer side effects and a more comprehensive treatment strategy. Unfortunately, many are still without access to this groundbreaking care.

Here comes "Melodies For Medicine", a fundraising initiative by the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra Foundation, under the aegis of the Siriraj Foundation, that seeks to bridge this gap.

Proceeds will go to the Precision Cancer Care For All fund whose commitment is to democratise access to precision oncology, ensuring that every patient, regardless of background, has a fighting chance.

Scheduled for Sunday from 1-4pm at AUA Auditorium, Ratchadamri Road, the charity concert is a harmonious merger of melodies and medicine in cooperation with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra. Every note played resonates their dedication to transform cancer care, one patient at a time.

The classical concert features a combination of Thai and German romantic music by Luang Vichit-Vadakan/Klaus Pringsheim, Prasidh Silapabanleng, Richard Strauss and Richard Wagner/Hugo Wolf to support this fundraising project.

Tickets cost 500 baht (half price for students) and can be purchased through the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra.
