Come and Check Your Own Breast For Early Detection of Cancer

Jakarta – October is the month of Cancer Care. The Indonesian Breast Cancer Foundation (YKPI) always holds various activities to commemorate the month of international breast cancer care (breast cancer awareness month). The goal is to ask all people to fight breast cancer.

In October 2018, the tagging of the caring month is done by “pinkifying” the Semanggi Stacking Bridge, in collaboration with the DKI Provincial Government.

“Through the pink symbol at the Semanggi Stacking Bridge, I ask people to care more about the importance of early breast cancer detection and do not give up to continue to support breast cancer survivors,” said YKPI Chairman Linda Agum Gumelarnya when met on the sidelines of the Fun Walk – in the FX Senayan area, Jakarta, Sunday (7/10).

Linda explained, the Fun Walk was attended by more than 200 breast cancer survivors. She hopes that this activity can provide awareness to the community to care for themselves. The trick is by doing your own breast examination (BSE). Linda also advises not to delay seeing a doctor if you feel irregularities in her breasts or feeling pain.

During this October, YKPI will also hold a Third Indonesian Breast Cancer Sensitivity Meeting with the theme “You Can, We Can!”

In addition, there is also a Program to Assist Cancer Patients at the Hospital, Socialize the Early Detection of Cancer and proceed with examination of mammography in Puskesmas in DKI Jakarta.

YKPI also provides optimal services for underprivileged breast cancer patients who are seeking treatment at Dharmais Hospital. They can stop by at YKPI Shelter House, on the way to Orchid Nelly Murni No. A38, Slipi, Jakarta, during the treatment.

“Let’s spread the spirit together to fight for friends to fight cancer. “Cancer fighters should not face this alone,” she concluded.
