A Little Time for Yourself Can Save You from Lifelong Breast Cancer Treatments
That was the overall message to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Santex Products Pvt. Ltd, parent company of Butterfly sanitary napkins. In collaboration with Shaukat Khanum Hospital, the Breast Cancer Awareness session was held for the company’s entire staff, at its factory office.
As it’s widely known, breast cancer affects approximately 2.1 million women worldwide every year. In Asia, Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer. One in nine women in Pakistan experience breast cancer at some stage of their lives. These are not just statistics, but a life of a woman who’s an economic force for the country, a mother, a daughter, an aunt, a cousin and so much more.
Knowing the importance of this, Santex held a session where representatives from Shaukat Khanum Hospital spread awareness about breast cancer symptoms and how it can be detected early by simply self-checking every month which can be a difference between life and death. This event underscored the importance of self-care, particularly for working women, and urged all present to prioritize their health & well-being.
