According to the estimation of the Hong Kong Cancer Registry, incidence of ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer and breast cancer will keep ascending to a level we should pay attention to. Women’s cancers rob women of choices and rip families and relationships apart. Therefore, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, LKS Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society jointly organise the “Care You Deserve” Women’s Cancers Campaign with the aim to raise awareness on women’s cancers. Donation raised with deduction of administrative cost will be allocated to setting up education corners.
Women need to work and take care of their families at the same time.
It’s time to CARE for yourself!
It’s time to CARE YOU DESERVE!
Please join us, say NO to women’s cancers!
