Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

First dedicated Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal, Every year approximately 50,000 women die from breast cancer in India. Breast cancer in India approximately 130 thousand cases of breast cancer have been recorded in India in 2014 alone. Whilst breast cancer was previously seen as an illness affecting older women, a study conducted by breastcancerindia.net showed that nearly 48 % of breast cancer cases recorded in India today affect women under the age of 50 compared to 25 years ago where the figures told a very different story. Medical experts put this down to the increased awareness of breast cancer in the country and also an increase in the number of cases. In assessing the ratio difference between breast cancer in both urban and rural areas of India, experts state, there is very little difference by way of the number of cases recorded accept among rural areas cancer is often detected later having devastating consequences.  Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

Breast Cancer Support, through the diverse range of services we offer internationally are in urgent need of your help to ensure Indian women living in rural areas and other women like them around the world are not forgotten in this global awareness campaign for breast cancer. Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

Unfortunately lots of cultural and social taboos along with myths and misconceptions are associated with breast cancer contributing to high mortality rates. Societal and cultural mores combined with poor access to rural healthcare for females limit the access to the information available on breast cancer and discourage both public and private discussion, advice, early discovery, and treatment among women.  Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

Good news is that breast cancer can be detected and cured at a very early stage! So it is important to focus on prevention and cure since the survival rate of breast cancer increases to more than 90% if diagnosed early. Breast Cancer is indiscriminate in who it targets. Today it maybe her, tomorrow it could be you, your daughter, wife, partner, Mother or someone you love. Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

A small simple donation can put smiles on the faces of those women who are battling with breast cancer right now. Yesterday they were leading normal lives, hard-working Mothers providing for their children, the lady you passed in the supermarket during your weekly shop, the lady that served you at the post office or perhaps the lady you spoke to at the bank yesterday morning who greeted you with a smile. Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal

Today, it was that life-defining trip to the Doctors which has changed their lives forever. With your help, Breast Cancer Support will ensure the pleasant memories of yesterday can become the beautiful reality for tomorrow. Breast cancer may change your life but with our support you will never let it define or dictate it! Breast Cancer Hospital India Appeal
