THE STORY:

Cancer is the 3rd highest cause of morbidity in Kenya [7% of deaths per year], after infectious diseases and cardiovascular disease. An estimate of 39,000 new cases of Cancer each year in Kenya with more than 27,000 deaths per year. 60% of Kenyans affected by Cancer are younger than 70 years old
The leading reported cases of cancer are as below in order
Women: Breast (34 per 100,000), Cervical (25 per 100,000)
Men: Prostate (17 per 100,000), Esophageal (9 per 100,000)
70-80% of cancer cases are diagnosed in late stages
Our intention as breast cancer cognition in kenya is to focus on the highest reported killer cancer in Kenya, that is the breast cancer. We would like to make it recognizable in the early stages more especially in the marginalised areas in kenya where its claims a lot of lifes. This is by crowdrise funds to buy mobile mammograms which are breast cancer screening units to be located in strategic area across the country starting with the marginalised areas.
