After 13 years of struggle against breast cancer, we believe that a dedicated breast cancer hospital with state of the art medical equipment is the dire need of today. Approximately 9.8 million women are at a risk of breast cancer in Pakistan. For some women this hospital can mean the difference between life and death. If diagnosed at an early stage, a patient’s chances of surviving are higher than 90%.
Millions are donated for cancer treatment every year with minimal impact. If we inject that same funding to early diagnostic facilities and catch the disease at an early stage, this will significantly reduce the funds required for treatment of each patient and thereby tremendously improving effectiveness of donations.
