Can Protect Foundation’s mission is screen each and every woman in India and to educate every woman about breast health issues and teach them the proper ways to conduct the Self Breast Examination.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
We organize free Breast Health Checkup camps, where clinical breast examination is done with breast light, During camps, we also do the training session for Self Breast Examination. We also spread awareness about Pap Smear and HPV for the prevention of Cervical Cancer.
Can Protect Team in the guidance of Dr. Sumita Prabhakar has been working from last 4 years for the prevention of Cancer in India and improving women’s healthcare by organizing FREE breast and cervical screening camps and awareness drive and has screened over 12,000 women for breast cancer and benefited over 5,00,000 women and 1,25,000 families so far.
Prevention: Screening is the number one way you can minimize your risk of cancer. While screening is the essential step you can take – it’s not the only one. You can take charge of your health by knowing your family history and possible risk factors, eating a balanced diet, exercising, limiting alcohol use and not smoking. Together, this is cancer we can do something about.
Early Detection: Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, before it’s had the chance to get too big or spread is more likely to be treated successfully. If cancer has spread, treatment becomes more difficult, and generally, a person’s chances of surviving are much lower. More than 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer at the earliest stage survive their disease for at least 5 years compared to around 15% for women diagnosed with the most advanced stage of the disease.
Women Health: CPF was founded in an effort to address the inadequate information and awareness available on women’s health and to bring issues of women’s health to the forefront of basic healthcare awareness. Through advocacy, education, and promotion, We have been making significant strides toward the advancement of women’s health throughout India.
