Get the PINK On! Let’s Fight Breast Cancer
Ghana is therefore joining hands with the rest of the world in one voice as we kick start a full month of Breast cancer awareness activities which has begun with the social media launch of #PAQ Against Breast Cancer initiative.
Breast cancer, which is the most common malignancy in women, accounts for 24 percent of all cancer cases. In all parts of the world today, cancer of the breast is a stark reality. For many years people have perceived breast cancer as a frightening disease surrounded by fears and myths.
One of the greatest fears expressed by almost all nearly diagnosed breast cancer patients is “am I going to die?”. In fact nowadays, many cancers are treatable when caught at an early stage and treated early. Even if the cancer is not completely curable, modern treatments often mean that the disease can be controlled for years and many patients can live an almost normal life. Most breast cancer patients in Ghana have not survived long enough compared to counterparts in more developed countries who enjoy better survival periods, according to Breast Care International Ghana.
It is in view of this, many of the Ghanaian social media youth today have taken it upon themselves to carry out this awareness campaign to educate the Ghanaian woman of the existence of breast cancer, undertake Screening Exercises, Diagnosis, and offer Counseling with qualified personals to help save illustrious women in the society especially our sisters and mothers in the rural areas.
The #PAQ Against Breast Cancer is a social media initiative which offers a common platform of which the Ghanaian youth can learn and also in return be able to educate others on Breast Cancer.
People are encouraged to join the official social media pages to share and help create the awareness,
