We strive together in our journey against breast cancer and walk with pride and dignity sharing the knowledge of awareness, helping women & men break the culture enforced embarrassment and openly discuss about Breast health! We educate the general population about the importance of taking care of Breast health, battling the ignorance among them that a small lump can cost life! The cause is supported by Friends, Family, Breast Cancer Survivors/Advocates, Oncologists, network of hospitals & physicians, Collaborators (Local Non-profit Foundations, local healthcare centers, Universities, Colleges & other Organizations). We raise awareness and educate the urban and rural population in local languages via social media, outreach events, on-the-spot interviews to depict and unravel the truth on embarrassment & taboo prevailing across the society even today.
We distribute free Breast Self-Exam (BSE) cards in local languages that works wonders specially in the developing world where a huge population fall below poverty line and they are ignorant and cannot afford regular health and breast screening methods like annual checkup, clinical exams, mammograms & ultrasounds. Even the educated populace in developing world, irrespective of socio-economic status are ignorant and reluctant. The norm in developing countries are to visit doctors when issues arise as opposed to preventative or detective controls, women hardly go for mammogram or ultrasound after the age of 40, that makes the BSE card an easy solution. It’s a mechanism to alert people to be proactive in raising issues to doctors immediately if they come across the signs, symptoms and abnormalities, especially in countries where clinical breast exam is not conducted by doctors starting at age 20.
Breast Cancer Hub is a family of selfless volunteers, helping to spread the awareness across the globe—A campaign!
