PWI Breast Cancer Event 2014

October is coming rapidly and so is the Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pink Ribbons will flourish on your blouses, coats... but this should not be just about wearing a small ribbon.

It is about you! You need to be Breast aware!

We all have busy & stressful lives and it is a challenge to fit an appointment months in advance in our agenda. So the screenings get cancelled, postponed…

The vast majority of us do not take time for ourselves, we come last while trying to juggle with a tight schedule. Does it ring a bell?

We are also pretty good at playing the ostrich policy: “Breast cancer in the family? Don’t want to know… No time for that… and if I do have something, what will happen to my career? It is not the right moment, I am too busy, this project is too important, I am finally close to my dream job…

Deep down we all know it isn’t the responsible attitude. Early diagnosis and good information is the key!

In light of this, Professor Piccart (Departement of Oncology at the ULB & Director of Medecine at Jules Bordet Institute) and Professor Abramowicz (Departement of Medical Genetics, Erasme Hospital ULB) will come and talk to us about screenings & controls, the risks linked with genetics, and the latest findings concerning treatments and the most promising researches.

Register & Join us on October 1st with your friends & family! Don't hesitate to spread the word!
