Breast Cancer Awareness Program in Northern Communities

This is the second year that The Galila Foundation has partnered up with the Ma’ale Yosef and Mate Asher Regional Councils’ Breast Cancer Awareness Program targeting Israel’s northern communities.

The project scope involves the production and distribution of information booklets to raise breast cancer awareness and the importance of self examinations. The booklets are distributed as background information to lectures given on the topic in the various northern communities. The lectures, given by Dr. Roizman, expose hundreds of women to the importance of self examination and early detection of the disease, as well as available treatments.

The promotion of breast cancer awareness is life-saving work. Early detection is often the deciding factor in getting cured. The Galila Foundations highly regards this program, which embodies its core mission of advancing the northern communities through a set of action plans.
