Women at Risk of Breast Cancer
Women to be Treated Annually
Women taught Breast Self-Exam Techniques
Female Students engaged in Breast Cancer Awareness Drive
At the outset in 2004, talking about Breast Cancer was difficult in the society where this fatal disease was largely associated with female sexuality. Pink Ribbon campaigned so effectively and broke the taboo as Breast Cancer was included in the narrative of mainstream media and became a priority in national health agenda. Spreading Breast Cancer awareness effectively and building alliances with public and corporate sector organizations led Pink Ribbon to win IPRA Frontline Golden World Award.

A Mother's Story of Survival
Since I felt no pain 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. Therefore, 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 came as a shock, but I fought hard because there was so much yet to be done in my life. My family and friends played an active part in helping me fight the disease. I still remember my family always accompanied me 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.
I remember when I used to go to the hospital for treatment and check-ups, the doctors would say, we don’t want to see you like this ever again. This and the motivation provided by doctors, 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 expensive treatment. Therefore, I appreciate the efforts of 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.
