This project held by 10am at Lagasa Community Health center, Lagasa road, Ibeju Lekki, Saturday 21st October 2017, free Breast screening, cervical cancer screening, Dental checks, consultation and medications were carried out. This project was necessary because, 100,000 new cases of Breast cancer happen in Nigeria every year. These are not just numbers; these are people – Mothers, wives, sisters, daughters! One clinical breast examination, self-breast examination or mammogram could save a life. With the project we succeeded in helping more women not to become just another statistic in the case of breast cancer.
