October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go.
Consciencia Rosa (Pink Conscience) wants to raise awareness of the dangers of breast cancer, but without forgetting many other health and spiritual issues that affect women in Brazil. Through various conferences and events doctors, nurses and specialist in the area share their knowledge with thousands of women through Brazil.
As part of this movement, Consciencia Rosa also deals with violence agains women. Together with the Federal Government of Brazil and the City of Curitiba, we are printing and distributing in the city public schools, 50,000 copies of a booklet created to teach children of the problem with violence agains women.
These problems affecting women worldwide. In some western countries there are many services and resources available. That is not the case in Brazil.
Will you help the women of Brazil?
