A webinar on “Breast Cancer Awareness” is being organised by National Service Scheme Society of VIPS and Gener Champions Club. It aims at spreading awareness about Breast Cancer, symptoms, causes, treatment, and more.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. One of the reasons for its high fatality rate is the lack of awareness. Thus, October has been marked as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In light of the same, there’s a campaign to help spread awareness about breast cancer.
