In the United States (U.S.), October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month an annual campaign that was launched to increase awareness of the disease.  It is a researched fact when there is early detection of breast cancer, in the localized stage (typically Stages 0 and 1), survival rates average 98%.

Fomukong Health Foundation reminds you, whether male or female, to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage your loved ones to do the same!

Localized Stages of Cancer

Stage 0 Breast Cancer

According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), or Stage 0 breast cancer, is a non-invasive cancer where abnormal cells have been found in the lining of the breast milk duct; the atypical cells have not spread outside of the ducts or lobules into the surrounding breast tissue.

Stage 1 Breast Cancer

In Stage 1 breast cancer, cancer is evident, but it is contained to only the area where the first abnormal cells began to develop.

In many underserved and underdeveloped communities, the procurement and supply of medicines and medical products needs to be streamlined in order to reduce shortages.  Importantly, many of these populations need better and focused education to prevent these populations from developing chronic diseases in the first place.

Through its efforts, FHF, Inc. strives on empowering local communities to have more control over healthcare resources and helping to shift healthcare delivery from a ‘treat and cure’ model to a preventive care one. FHF needs to:

      • Create & distribute printable and electronic health fact sheets to community clinics and village elders
      • Distribute condoms
      • Propagating health fact sheets using email and social media networks
