THE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is to raise the importance of regular self-breast examination and the critical role of screening in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer among women. A breast self-examination (BSE) is a method to detect any noticeable changes in one's breast. Early detection of any changes in the breast and seeking immediate consultation will increase one's chances of successful treatment.
THE ICANSERVE FOUNDATION
ICanServe Foundation, Inc. is a Manila-based non-profit organization founded in 1999 by four breast cancer survivors. It provides hope and help to women at risk for or living with breast cancer. Its mission is to promote early breast cancer detection. Its flagship program is Ating Dibdibin (Take your Breast Care to Heart), the country's first comprehensive community-based breast cancer screening program. Ating Dibdibin entails training a locality's medical team and barangay (community) health workers, patient navigation and providing free or subsidized cancer treatments for those diagnosed under the program. ICanServe also provides training to elevate the capabilities of and networks with breast cancer support groups all over the Philippines. It empowers women with breast cancer-related information so they can have a voice in their own health care. Volunteers are cancer survivors willing to share their light with other patients and survivors so that their path is better lit, and the journey, lighter. Its online community (e-group) consists of over 300 women cancer survivors. ICanServe Foundation's main office is in Pasig City. It has an affiliate in Cebu City. Website: www.icanservefoundation.org
