It is likely that Breast cancer if detected early can be curable. To not let this opportunity fall away just because of lack of awareness, negligence, and resources Can Protect Foundation organizes Free Breast Cancer Screening Camp at Coronation Hospital, Dehradun on 20th July 2018.
Organized with the aim of promoting breast cancer awareness among the women and offering them easy access to early screening facilities. We have also offered Free Gynecology consultation, Women were also taught how to undertake their self-breast examinations. 45 women screened during the camp, 1 women were identified with a lump and referred for further investigation, two women diagnosed with breast cancer and referred for further investigation.
"A remarkable feature of this camp is that in spite of the huge crowd who have turned up here today, all the screening, gynecology consultation are being handled systematically, ensuring minimal inconveniences for us.” One of the women said.
