There are many different types of breast cancer, so the treatment is not the same for every woman. The treatment of breast cancer is determined by various factors.
DR JUNAID SARFRAZ VICE CHANCELLOR UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES
Breast cancer is no longer a death sentence, and to get this message across, there must be efforts to dispel fears and infuse optimism into the lives of hundreds of women, their families and the community at large. A dedicated breast cancer hospital is the need of the hour.
In Pakistan, recent trends have shown that breast cancer is increasing at an alarming rate. Our country has the highest rate of breast cancer in Asia.
I strongly believe that it is the right of every woman to know about fatal diseases and society should support their cause rather than considering the issue a social taboo. I congratulate Mr. Omer Aftab, CEO of Pink Ribbon Pakistan and his team on setting up first dedicated breast cancer hospital in Pakistan.

“We must understand that breast cancer is a problem which is very close to our own homes and it needs to be dealt with in a concerted and consistent manner. We will use all our considerable resources for the success of this Program. Extra efforts will be made for conducting meaningful research in this area. Setting up an institute is a laborious process but it will surely benefit the society at large.”
Wish you all the best for your project.
DR. SAMINA KHOKER HEAD OF SURGICAL UNIT, SERVICES HOSPITAL
Everyday I receive patients referred by Pink Ribbon. By the grace of Allah we have saved thousands of lives because Pink Ribbon referred them to us at an early stage. Early detection is the key, to save someone’s life. Pink Ribbon has been doing this job for over a decade now and they are breaking their own records every day.
I strongly support Pink Ribbon.
Now that I have gone through all this pain, I think that if I had detected breast cancer at an early stage and decided to go for an immediate treatment, I would not have experienced all this suffering. You should self-examine your breasts regularly and if you feel any kind of abnormality, just consult a doctor.
Every woman must have decent knowledge about breast cancer and Pink Ribbon is continuously working on it. It is a great cause to aware people about their health. If I had this knowledge about Breast Cancer, its types and treatment before, I wouldn’t have gone through the mental suffering that I went through due to my ignorance.
When a woman goes through breast cancer treatment, emotional and psychological support is your Hope. Especially when you listen about other women who had defeated Breast Cancer, it gives you true strength and courage. it would have never been possible for me to defeat Breast Cancer without the support of my family and doctors.
