EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2016
At Zsquare4theCure, we believe that knowledge is power and we also believe that educating a woman is educating a village. Lisette Zounon Biekre, witnessed first-hand, the struggle and trivia her mother went through after being diagnosed with breast cancer. The lack of information and resources about this silent deadly disease, in most West African rural communities, and the facts that breast cancer is the second most deadly cancer among black women of African descent are the reasons that led to the creation of Zsquare4theCure foundation.
With our efforts on empowering and educating women, we can help women get early breast cancer detection, as well as get those diagnosed with the disease the treatments needed. By acquiring better knowledge and understanding of breast cancer, we believe that the attitudes, behaviors and beliefs of Africans toward breast cancer in West Africa can get better. Zsquare4theCure, is also committed to partnering with scientists, research groups and physicians invested in finding a cure for the disease. We believe that by doing all of these, we can help ultimately eradicate the social taboos surrounding breast cancer by providing treatments and latest research information about the cure to show that breast cancer is not a death sentence and that there is life after breast cancer.
