To constitute an organization with a group of women in order to give more and better help in the field of breast cancer.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Because this project is for women of low social classes & resources, we deal with a wide range of necessities. It covers aspects such as psychological effects due to changes in appearence and the treatment itself. It is also important to promote the prevention of this disease in order to avoid possible future aggressive treatments, including practices such as surgery.
How will this project solve this problem?
Work with 14 groups in the country. Promote creation of groups of people in different places; in order to inform, educate & support those who are suffering from cancer. Organize workshops & seminars to change our political system on health matters.
Potential Long Term Impact
The main objective is to become a national reference in this field. Promote a positive view instead of the negative social connotation cancer provokes in people.
