Our Brand Story
At the outset in 2004, talking about Breast Cancer was not easy in the society where this fatal disease was largely associated with female sexuality, but Pink Ribbon campaigned so effectively that not only the taboo was broken and Breast Cancer was included in the narrative of mainstream media but also the government acknowledged the cause and made Breast Cancer a priority in national health agenda. This impressive campaign of spreading Breast Cancer awareness and building alliances with public and corporate sector organization led Pink Ribbon win IPRA Frontline Golden World Award.

A Mother's Story of Survival
Since no pain is felt in the initial stages of breast cancer, it is very difficult and equally important to get it detected early because if detected early, more chances of survival are there. The pain that one has to go in this disease is unbearable. This is why it is very important to get it diagnosed on time.
When I discovered a lump in my breast, I did not feel any pain; however, the doctors suggested a mammogram and biopsy which afterwards confirmed breast cancer. The news did come as a shock but I decided to fight hard because there was so much yet to be done. My family and friends played an active part in helping me fight the disease. I still remember I was always accompanied by my family when I visited hospitals. It was their support and cooperation that helped me fight. It is their support that helps you pluck up the strength to survive after all.
I remember when I used to go to hospital for treatment and check-ups, the doctors would recognize me and would say to me that we don’t want to see you like this ever again. This and the motivation provided by friends and family kept me going.
I totally agree with the fact that there is a dire need of an affordable dedicated breast cancer hospital in Pakistan because most of the patients cannot afford the treatment many expensive hospitals have to offer. This is why I appreciate the efforts Pink Ribbon Pakistan has made so far. The hospital project particularly is much needed and the hospital should keep the treatment within the reach of the poor.
