Breast Cancer Event
“Women should not be scared of the breast cancer diagnosis, and the disease itself. They need to stay strong in order to survive, the way I am coping now with my stomach cancer,” Mirvat,45, a Palestinian refugee from Lebanon, said on breast cancer.
Our education and legal team organized an awareness session on breast cancer for Syrian and Palestinian women refugees in Lebanon. The gynecologist, Dr. Haifa, educated women on the nature of the disease, diagnosis, and recovery.
The session was very inspiring and empowering for women who shared their thoughts an concerns with each other. At the end of the session, a free diagnosis was provided to all the women who attended the event.
