Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink (2)WILLEMSTAD - 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. The world has made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and every helping hand is needed.

This month, a group of women has gone to The Fundashon di Prevenshon, which is the foundation for prevention of breast cancer here in Curaçao. This group brought in cookies, coffee and juice, they had their mammograms and stayed to cheer on the others who had appointments after them. This group decided to help encourage every woman to get a potentially lifesaving mammogram by making a public service ad.

Curaçao Chronicle also wants to help by publishing this Breast Cancer Awareness ad. We hope it gets the attention it needs.
