October worldwide is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
The main reason why so many women die from cancer is late detection of the disease, usually when it is already in advanced stage. Therefore, October 23rd the meeting was held in Solwit, where participants were given the opportunity to learn how to facilitate early diagnosis and thus increase the probability of recovery to almost 100%.
On this day the Solwit logo was decorated with a pink ribbon – the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.
The meeting was led by Izabela Sakutova, an expert at the Warsaw Oncology Center for Women’s Health, an international brafitting expert and the initiator of the nationwide campaign “Touch = Win” (PL: “Dotykam=Wygrywam”).
The meeting was attended by ladies working in Solwit and the employees’ wives, partners, mothers and sisters.
