Breast Cancer Hospital Pakistan Appeal

First Dedicated Breast Cancer Hospital in Pakistan Appeal Every year 40,000 women die from breast cancer in Pakistan and approximately 90,000 new cases are diagnosed. Breast Cancer Hospital Pakistan Appeal

Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer in whole of Asia with every 9th woman at high risk of getting breast cancer at some point in her life. Prevalence of breast cancer is the maximum amongst all the cancers in Pakistan i.e. 38.5%. Every year 40,000 women are killed with breast cancer in Pakistan and approximately 90,000 new cases are diagnosed, however the number of unreported cases is expected to be much more. Breast Cancer Hospital Pakistan Appeal  

Unfortunately lots of cultural and social taboos along with myths and misconceptions are associated with breast cancer contributing to high mortality rates as most of the women report at stage III and IV, thus reducing the chances of survival. On the other hand, the total spending on health sector is dismally low i.e. 3.58% of the total government expenditure. Breast Cancer Hospital Pakistan Appeal  

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 Pakistan Appeal  

“Women in the developing countries, like Pakistan tend to die at greater rates than in more developed countries because the disease is generally detected when it is in its advance stages,”

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 Pakistan 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 Pakistan 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 Pakistan Appeal
