Ulhas Jewellers launches its annual campaign for ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’
October is breast cancer awareness month and the time to make people aware about this issue.
Breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the tissues of the breast and develops when cells in the breast mutate and grow out of control, forming a tumour. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. In India, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 4 minutes. One woman dies of breast cancer, every 13 minutes in India. However, even if breast cancer cannot be prevented it can be treated within time.
Over the years, Ulhas Jewellers, has been striving to create an awareness on the high mortality rate and that is due to the lack of awareness and delay in screening and diagnosis. This year too, Ulhas Jewellers will be creating awareness about breast cancer among their customers with the help of the staff specially trained for the same by handing informative bookmarks to the customers and to include more Goans in the awareness campaign, Ulhas Jewellers will be presenting Live Musical evenings by Reena and Lindsay during the month of October.
The live shows have given a positive response on social media handles of Ulhas Jewellers and efforts have been made to create awareness on breast cancer via contests and advice from prominent doctors in the field – Dr. Brennan Tavares, Dr. Asheesh P Gude, Dr. Sawani Hegde Surlakar, Dr. Jean Louis Arcanjo de Menezes.
“We request all Goans to be a part of our efforts to raise awareness about the ever-growing issue of breast cancer,” said Vikram Verlekar, Managing Director of Ulhas Jewellers Pvt. Ltd. He further said, “For the past 7 years, Ulhas Jewellers has supported women by helping them get access to the awareness, screening, and support they need; and considering the spurt in cases of breast cancer in the age group of 30 to 50, we are further determined to create more awareness among the women in Goa”
