Breast cancer is a disease that starts in the cells of the breast. It occurs when abnormal cells within the breast tissue begin to grow uncontrollably, forming a lump or tumor. This can affect both women and, less commonly, men, and it’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women worldwide. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time when communities around the world come together to show support, and drive progress in the fight against breast cancer. This month Clay Café is working with an amazing foundation called “I love boobies” …
“I Love Boobies” is an organisation that focuses on breast cancer awareness and education. While its name may be somewhat playful, its mission is serious; to promote early detection and support those affected by breast cancer. The foundation seeks to break down the stigma surrounding breast health discussions and encourages open conversations about breast cancer. “I Love Boobies” often engages in creative and youth-oriented campaigns to raise awareness and funds for research, treatment, and support services. It aims to empower individuals to take proactive steps in their breast health. This foundation emphasizes the importance of early detection in the fight against breast cancer. Early detection can save lives. ILoveBoobies provides FREE breast cancer screenings to woman who face social, financial & logistic challenges to access life saving, early detection screenings.
We are joining forces with I❤️Boobies
A percentage of money raised at Clay Café during October will be going towards breast screenings . The screening team of nurses go into different communities who do the physical examinations. If there are any abnormalities the patient will then be sent through to radiology. Their partners at SCP radiology or Winelands radiology will then give those patients mammograms. It is all about empowering women by ensuring that they have access to early detection. Everyone deserves access to essential care and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of this important foundation.
