BCF* is a non-profit organisation set up in 1997 with the mission of eradicating breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. To achieve this, it propagates awareness and education through talks, seminars, exhibitions and publications, and advocates early detection through regular screening.
Through this event, BCF also hope to reach out to as many people as possible irrespective of gender, profession or ethnic group. BCF believes that by doing so more people will not only become aware of breast cancer and related issues but also become our partners in spreading our education messages.
Though the actual Breast Cancer campaign is in October, BCF is organising face-to-face programmes, fund-raising activities as well as messages and information through mass media. Click here to see the list of activities that are being organised.
Join me in this walk against breast cancer. Every participation is a significant form of support towards raising breast cancer awareness, showing support to survivors and raising funds to further enhance Breast Cancer Foundation’s support group programmes and awareness outreach.
