1. POPULATION OUTREACHES TO GENERATE AWARENESS ABOUT BREAST CANCER IN WOMEN & MEN- People are not aware that a painless or painful lump in the breast could be cancer due to Knowledge-IGNORANCE & SHYNESS. Our strategy #BreakTheBreastTaboo. We also focus on How Mammograms miss tumors with Dense Breast, Lifestyle, Diet, Stress, Exercise & preventable measures for all types of Cancer. 2018 & 2019 - Sessions conducted in USA & India USA- Chicago, Charlotte, Concord INDIA- We conducted more than 140 outreaches in India, covering cities, towns, villages, tea-gardens,hospitals, colleges, universities, research Centers in urban and rural sectors all across India. https://www.breastcancerhub.org/events In India, during the camps, if we request women to go for Mammogram after age 40, it’s the inertia and mindset, only 1% women will go and 99% will think – "my family doesn’t have Breast cancer, why do I worry?" In addition, huge population of India is stricken by poverty, & if we request them to take one day off from their daily wage work & go to the nearby hospital to do either free screening mammogram or spend money from their pocket to do the same, this will never work. In addition, women are not aware that mammograms can miss tumors due to dense breast issues. Therefore, the best screening method that covers all aspects is Breast Self Exam (BSE). We produced BSE cards in 10 Indian languages – Assamese, Bengali, Hindi, Kannada, Odia, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu in addition to English, Bahasa, German, Portuguese, Spanish, with our wonderful collaborators. https://breastselfexams.org/self-breast-exams-cards/ 2.
