Breast Cancer NGO in India

“Can Protect Foundation”, is a society registered in India, working towards women’s health, Breast and Cervical Cancer awareness and prevention by organising free breast and cervical cancer awareness and prevention camps.  Our goal is to provide free prevention, training, and awareness facilities to prevent breast and cervical cancer, preventing thousands of deaths each year.

Limited or no knowledge about breast and cervical cancer, long travel times, and unaffordable or sometimes unavailable tools for detection mean that large numbers of women are often not diagnosed with breast cancer until it is too late to treat.

Other than free medical checkups and cancer prevention camps we also aim to teach the women about cancer symptoms and how to conduct a potentially life-saving breast self-exam. Without us, these women would have to travel miles to the nearest facility, we provide free checkup camps something closer to their homes.

Can Protect Foundation also aims at setting up a national plan dedicated to preventive practices for detecting breast and cervical cancer at an early stage to achieve very high cure rates while considerably reducing the aggressiveness of the treatments applied.

Started by the initiative of Dr. Sumita Prabhakar, the “Can Protect Foundation” ceaselessly working since 2015 to promote the prevention of breast and cervical cancer by organizing free breast cancer awareness and prevention camps. Furthermore, the Can Protect Foundation made a commitment to aware each and every teenage girl to take care of her health in the coming future, for this foundation’s qualified team members organize awareness sessions by going to various schools under the special campaign ‘Meri Maa Swasth Maa’.

The organization has so far done a checkup on more than 35,000 women in India.
Many famous doctors are associated with the Can Protect Foundation. Currently, the foundation is backed by many volunteers.
