As part of the global campaign against breast cancer, Pink Pearl Foundation - a public service charity organization championing women empowerment in the fight against breast cancer will hold its maiden one-day programme titled: Pink Hope PPF on the 25th October 2014 in Lagos.
Hope Session is a breast cancer support group designed to provide psychological help to breast cancer patients and survivors. The support group consists of informative and interactive seminars which include psychology, well-being, therapy, body aesthetics & recreation programs anchored by the foundation’s ambassadors – Maje Ayida, Banke Meshida-Lawal, Leila Fowler amongst others.
According to the CEO, Pink Pearl Foundation, Orode Ryan Okpu, “The most significant progress we have made to reduce death rate from cancer is through early detection; this yields better long term outcomes and lower morbidity rates.
Pink Pearl Foundation contributes to the reduction of suffering, permanent physical damage/ disfigurement and death caused by breast cancer as we believe that if you can save a woman, then you have saved a generation.” “Hope Session” is testament to the Foundation’s dedication to increase public awareness through education about symptoms, prevention, diseases processes and the importance of regular examination for early detection.
