National Campaign for Cancer Awareness also known as Cancer Aware Nation (CAN) celebrated the conclusion of its ‘Breast Cancer’ Awareness Campaign that was ongoing during the month of October under the slogan ‘You deserve attention.’ The event was held under the patronage of Sheikha Fadiya Saad Al-Abdallah Al-Salem Al-Sabah and in partnership with Kuwait Women’s Voluntary Association for Community Service (KWVACS).

CAN Chairman of the Board Dr. Abdelrahman Abdallah Al-Awadhi expressed his happiness towards the success CAN is achieving year after year, adding that the campaign’s efforts are very clear within Kuwait’s society. “I am very happy to see what I hoped for 60 years ago, being fulfilled today, including the training of females on self examination, and we succeeded in training and educating our daughters, the future mothers, on self examination. Dr. Al-Awadhi thanked Sheikha Fadiya for her support.

Sheikha Fadiya who chairs the KWVACS said: “It has always been my dream, since I got involved in voluntary action, to be distinguished with what I do because it is a reflection of existing and self fulfillment. Since I became the head of KWVACS, I understood the importance of instilling creative action, principles, and that became evident with the proposal of holding a joint activity ”
