“Because You are the Life” was the title of a breast cancer early detection campaign that held by SARC Homs health awareness team.
Breast cancer is the most common one among women all over the world. However, the earlier it is detected , the better women are recovered. During the Breast Cancer Awareness Month that framed across the world with October month, SARC Homs health awareness team launched an awareness campaign that lasted for two weeks which went through all breast cancer’s aspects such as its early detection, syndromes and treatment, with much concentration on the importance of supporting patients psychologically.
During the campaign, the team distributed items such that remind women to self-examine their breasts for tumours at the optimum time of their menstrual cycle. 1000 women in Homs and its countryside benefited from this campaign.
It is worth mentioning that health awareness team’s activities are held by cooperation between SARC and UNFPA.
