Our Impact

BRECAN has tremendously improved breast cancer awareness through various strategic programmes like our annual Jog for Life which comes up in the month of October the global breast cancer awareness month, the world cancer day programmes in February, the cancer survivors month of July, etc. Our world cancer day activities in the month of February includes, outreaches to schools, markets and other public places.
BRECAN latches on every international cancer day or month to create more awareness. Albeit every other month in BRECAN witnesses one programme or the other. BRECAN’s successes over the years is deeply entrenched in consistence and unrelenting awareness drive and advocacy.

Our Focus

The Pillars of Our Operations
Our top priorities is educating women on what they can do to be proactive with their breast health.
The greatest challenge to surviving cancer is cost of treatment and lack of funds.
It is sad that women keep dying from cervical cancer when early detection can save them.
BRECAN’s aggressive advocacy is beginning to post impressive results and gain traction.
