Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women. About 13% of women born today will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.
The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
In the month of Breast Cancer awareness, the BitHope Foundation together with the Win Over Cancer Foundation are launching a joint campaign to generate funding for free screenings in cities, towns and villages throughout Bulgaria.
All the collected funds in this campaign will be used for raising awareness, performing free screenings throughout the country and for primary care for women, suspected to carry the disease after being diagnosed during physical examinations.
About the “Win Over Cancer” Foundation
The “Win Over Cancer” Foundation brings together young specialists and experienced professionals, whose aim is to help the people with oncological diseases to get through the whole process of cancer treatment - from prevention and diagnosis, to therapy and rehabilitation. The foundation manages the CancerCare.bg website.
The foundation has so far organized numerous successful projects and campaigns including the online informational platform “CancerCare.bg”, campaigns about different types of cancer and the biggest recent project – “Race for the Cure”.
Race for the Cure is the biggest sports charity event in Bulgaria, which supports women with breast cancer. The marathon was organized for the first time on 29.09.2019 and managed to attract more than 2000 participants. Apart from the running itself, the campaign raised awareness about breast cancer and most importantly - provided free prophylactic examinations to women.
