Breast Cancer Conference

The 6th World Conference on Breast Cancer began Tuesday June  7 with a silent awareness walk through the streets of Hamilton.

Most of the events will take place at the Hamilton Convention Centre. Session topics include whether self-examination can prevent breast cancer, the decision-making process around mothers with breast cancer, breast cancer in different cultures and countries, and post-cancer treatment symptoms. The YWCA held classes for attendees to introduce them to the Encore program, of which our club is the signature sponsor.

The World Conference is inspired by the vision of a world without breast cancer and moved forward by the passion of individuals determined to eradicate the disease. Through their commitment, co-operation and energy we are able to create an international forum where all aspects of breast cancer can be addressed and immediate action steps taken. The Hamilton Spectator had excellent coverage of individual’s stories »
