Our Protected content Cancer Campaign consists of 3 parts. In part 1 we visit a clinic where the PHILIPPINE FOUNDATION FOR BREAST CANCER (KASUSO) has their headquarter. This advocate and support group is based in the Breast Care Center Annex of East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City. Its comprehensive Boobie Programs include awareness campaigns with free breast screening, mammography, stereotactic biopsy, financial assistance, counseling, surveillance, home visits and social events.

We will get information and a basic training which will prepare us for parts 2 and 3 where we participate in awareness campaigns in front of young Philippine women. Part 2 will be in a public school and part 3 in a special program for female minor survivors of sexual abuse.

Though you can make donations at the Foundation and Care program MONEY DONATIONS ARE NOT MANDATORY and not part of my activity! As usual there is no cost involved and all female members of Internations are heartily invited. (Changing this from all members to female only) After the visit we probably go to a cafe nearby and hang out a bit more.

Our goal is to help tackling that very sensitive topic for the Pinoy society is shy with intimate topics like female breasts. We need the support of open minded women to point out the importance of early screenings and regular monitoring.
