Did you know that October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month? The annual campaign was created to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment as well as palliative care of this disease.
There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458,000 deaths from breast cancer each year (IARC Globocan, 2008). Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries. Currently there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer, therefore, early detection of the disease remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control.*
We encourage all our clients, family and friends to join the cause and help women in need. If you would like to help, please use this link.
