As the leaves begin to turn and we welcome October, we can look forward to the celebration of many holidays and events. October also signifies the commencement of another important event: international Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a health campaign that aims to increase awareness about breast cancer and raise money for research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and most importantly: a cure.
This campaign has a strong connection to Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW). CHW proudly funds and continues to support the M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center.
At this institute, which is the only one of its kind in Israel, women receive same-day results and are given immediate diagnosis and treatment plans.
The establishment of this unit promotes healthcare as well as serves to better assist women in their day-to-day lives. CHW is proud to be playing an integral role in the fight against breast cancer.
