In an event created by JWT Brazil for the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, the Unexpected Choir made up of laryngectomy patients gave a performance to raise awareness about larynx cancer and its main risk factor: smoking. Twelve patients surprised the audience of MASP’s auditorium, who were waiting for the USP (São Paulo University) Choir.
