October : Breast Cancer Awareness Month – CurbCancer Nigeria

 

breast cancer awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer,many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Many people in our environment are ignorant and have misperceptions of cancers and only just go to the hospital when it is almost too late to act. Now,this is where CurbCancer Nigeria comes into play.

curbcancerNG

CurbCancer Nigeria is an organization which was setup by a team of medics and healthcare professionals. As our name implies, we are not trying to cure cancers, however we are trying to put a check to its rising incidence and also to reduce the no of friends, family, bright futures and dreams this disease is stealing from us through death.
We intend to do this through:
– Increasing awareness about the existence and known causes of cancers
– Facilitating behavioural change amongst our people by promoting healthy lifestyle habits
– Promoting early detection of cancers through screening exercises
– Providing hope, support and advice for people living with cancers

– Serving as advocates to the government and corporations for people living with cancers”
