About Campaignends 30 Apr 2021, 11:59 PM
In line with World Health Day, we would like to encourage all women to take charge of your breast health by incorporating breast self-examination (BSE) as part of your self-care routine.
Today, Breast Cancer is leading killer disease for women in Singapore and around the world. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently announced that breast cancer has overtaken lung cancer as the most occurring cancer in the world. In Singapore 1 in 13 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 75. The good news is that early detection does save lives and dramatically increases the chance of a full recovery.
Do make time for self-care by making time for a BSE for 10 minutes every month. It will be the most important gift to yourself as a woman.
Please donate to support our work in spreading this life-saving message to every woman in Singapore.
