Cancer awareness session for women
Greetings from STEPS NGO
Cancer can have a devastating impact on women and their families.There is need for timely good medical intervention to create awareness and screening of women in slums of Kalahasti. During coming days we are planning to reach more communities living slums.
With your support we would like to increase services so that we can save lives and reduce suffering by helping women get access to healthcare.We are also trying for new partnerships with cancer organizations, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies who can assist us for implementing this program.
One of the beneficiary of program expressed that “by attending cancer awareness programs organized by STEPS NGO with the support of Global Giving, we know about women cancers and their symptoms. We can do self examination for the breast cancer symptoms. Thanks for the donors who are behind this program.”
Every month women are being screened for breast cancer. Women living in slums are making use of our facility and are being referred to us from other institutions. Women with abnormalities that were detected during the screening were referred to higher institutions for further investigations and treatment. We are planning to provide screening service to any woman who needs it living in Srikalahasti town. A special thanks to our staff, volunteers for ensuring that women receive help through our free services.
