An effort that voiced its appeal loud and clear “Roko Cancer” – It could happen to you. The movement gained momentum on 16th Dec 2005 when the Trust launched the First Fully Equipped Mobile Breast Cancer Detection Unit for the semi urban and rural areas of Punjab. As volunteers and cause – driven partners joined hands globally, Roko Cancer’s clarion call started reaching out its buzzword of “awareness” to the far flung rural and semi urban areas of India at a fast and furious pace.
A first – ever Fully Equipped Mobile Breast Cancer Detection Unit that takes a journey for a cause through the tough terrains of Punjab, Delhi, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Gujarat, Haryana,Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, has in a short span touched a figure of over 11,023 mammograms and 345 positive Plus 3,315 (Followups/ advised/Under study) and examined 46,001 women, that is nothing less than remarkable. We want to inspires an undying spirit of waging a war against ignorance towards Breast Cancer globally with the message.
