Here in the US we have regular awareness of breast cancer.

During our regular physicals, doctors make a point in asking us to be aware of any sigs/symptoms.

We need to have more awareness in the Asian continent though.  A lot of people I know have no clue about what it is.

Thnx For This

In Western Countries the awareness is gud but agree wid the fact that it should spread. & its actually becoming quite bad
Hoping people find a better cure

There have been a lot of events going on supporting this esp the sales& stuff just hoping it spread & this a great way
