BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: ANAQ FOUNDATION CAMPAIGNS FOR EARLY DETECTION

 
The Month of October in every year is set as Breast Cancer Awareness Month there we at ANAQ Foundation wish to advice Ghanaian women the need to attach interest to their breast care.
Breast Care cannot be spiritual as perceived by some Ghanaians and doctors  said the root causes of the disease are not yet known but hereditary and the lifestyle of individuals have been identified by doctors as some of the causes of the disease.
 
Figures released by the World Health Organization (WHO) have revealed that a total of 2,000 Ghanaian women were diagnosed of breast cancer in the year 2012.
 
The report indicated that, 1,000 of the figure, representing 50 per cent of the cases died and so there was an increasing danger of complications for women in Ghana and the whole of Africa.
 
Breast cancer has been identified as the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Ghana, with about 2,900 cases being diagnosed annually and at least one of eight women with the disease dying. 
 
Also, 1.7 million women were diagnosed of the disease worldwide of which 500,000, representing 28 per cent died.
 
Every woman is beautiful with the presence of the breast and we can all accept that the breast is one of the leading features between a man and woman therefore the breast is important to every woman.
ANAQ Foundation wishes all women Breast Cancer Free Month. Let’s All come together and fight breast cancer.
