Mobilization against breast cancer: tangible actions

Written by FDM

In light of pink October, the group Oncology et Diagnostic  du Maroc is mobilizing against breast cancer through several actions that will punctuate this awareness month.  

A media campaign made of videos carrying messages of awareness and prevention on the necessity of breast cancer screening is broadcasted on social networks in order to diffuse the message encouraging women to take a step forward.

In Marrakech as in Casablanca, doctors will explain how early detection can save lives, in a simplified language and accessible to all: in French, Arabic and Amazigh. Specialists at the treatment center Al Kindy and the Anoual Radiology in Casablanca are also mobilizing to convince women to perform preventive mammograms, for when it is detected at an early stage, breast cancer can be cured in more than 9 out of 10 cases.

This awareness campaign will continue with 2 conferences that will be organized by qualified doctors in oncology, oncology surgery and radiology specialized in breast screening on October 24, 2018 at 5:30pm in Casablanca at the Studio des Arts Vivant, in collaboration with the association Amis du Ruban Rose and in Marrakech on October 25, 2018 at the hotel Le Méridien at 6pm in collaboration with the association ACTION Cancer Marrakech. Access is open for free to all women of the Kingdom.
