Breast Cancer Surgical Mission 2018

$3,760 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 37 people in 9 months
According to the World Health Organization, Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in both developed and undeveloped countries.  Of the 458,000 Breast cancer deaths each year, 269,000 of those deaths occur in middle to lower income countries because women do not have access to early screening and treatment. The World Health Organization recommends education on early signs and symptoms, clinical breast exam, and mammography where available, as detection strategies. In many countries where preventative programs and education have not been undertaken, the task seems insurmountable.

In response to a global need, Caríbe Breast Cancer Care was formed. Partnering with the International Breast Cancer Team of Southampton, N.Y., led by Dr. Edna Kapenhas,  preventative breast cancer care is now available for the first time on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.

The team will be volunteering in the Dominican Republic to help others in need this upcoming February! We ask you to help us continue providing these essential services by making as small or as large a donation as you can.  Please help support our Southampton Hospital team in conjunction with Island Impact Ministries by taking the time to spread the word and donate to this great cause! Your donation with help us fund the surgery, anesthesia, overnight hospital stay, pathology screenings, biopsies,  dressing supplies, medications, chemotherapy,  bras, wigs, ect to those who we provide care for.  Thank you for all of your love and support!!!
