‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’
According to the WHO, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, claiming thousands of lives every year. In their busy schedules, women often ignore their own selves. They have endless excuses for avoiding regular health checkups. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, we decided to bring this facility available to them in school. While in school to attend the PTM’s of their wards, the mothers above the age of forty were provided with a complementary, facility for Mammography Screening in the school.The school in association with the Rotary Club of Gurugram set up a mobile mammography van in the school premises. This initiative was taken to spread awareness about Breast Cancer and sensitize the mothers with preventive measures for the same.
