1. One in eight women in India, will suffer from breast cancer in their lifetime.
2. In India, every 3 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and every 6 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.
3. Around 70% of patients get diagnosed in advanced stages due to lack of regular screening and early detection.
"Breast Cancer Awareness & Regular Screening Saves Lives"
More than one third of cancer cases can be prevented. Another third can be treated if detected early. Which means we can save innumerable lives every year through awareness and early detection.
Over the past 2 years, we have made more than 2,00,000 women aware about importance of breast cancer awareness and early detection. Screening over 80,000 women for breast cancer in the state of Goa & also training them on self breast examination. We are now expanding the initiative nation wide.
