CEO's Message

After 14 years of struggle against Breast Cancer, I believe that a dedicated breast cancer hospital with state of the art medical equipment is the dire need of the hour. Approximately 10.2 million women are at a risk of breast cancer in Pakistan. This hospital can be a catalyst in saving many of them. If diagnosed at an early stage, a patient's chances of survival are higher than 90%. Millions are donated for cancer treatment every year with minimal impact. If we inject that same funding to early diagnostic facilities and catch the disease at an early stage, this will significantly reduce the funds required for treatment of each patient and thereby tremendously improve effectiveness of donations. Come forward and make your generous donations to Pink Ribbon Hospital which is Pakistan's first ever dedicated facility for Breast Cancer treatment.
