Think Pink Founder, Julie Sprakel, recently paid BMMI Bahrain an inspiring visit for a breast cancer awareness session. Julie discussed the risk factors, signs and stages of breast cancer and the importance of self-examinations and clinical screening. In addition, she also gave our employees a self-check demonstration addressing all their questions and concerns. The session was very empowering and a great opportunity for both our female and male employees alike.
What is great about Think Pink is that it was set up with the aim to redirect all funds towards serving and raising awareness among the Bahraini society. In fact, the non-profit has raised enough money for an MRI machine for breast screening, which will be available next year exclusively at the Salmaniya Medical Complex to aid their fight against breast cancer. Rest assured, there is a great deal of amazing doctors and support systems in the country, as this will be a free service available to the general public.
There remains to be a lack of research specifically in regards to the risk factors and cases in the region. However, we hope to witness a shift when it comes to the quality of information available and research conducted by expert doctors in the region.
We appreciate everyone who took the time to attend the session, and we hope that they will transfer this valuable knowledge on to their loved ones. If anyone is interested in supporting such a great non-profit, Think Pink Bahrain (Bahrain Breast Cancer Society), you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively call on +9733076717.
