October 15th 2016
In line with Breast Cancer Awareness month, ABK recently announced the successful conclusion of its sponsorship of the Kuwait Cancer Control Center (KCCC) open day for cancer patients from the center. The event was held on 13 October 2016, at the Sheikha Badriya Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah Center for Oncology and Stem Cell Transfusion.
ABK’s sponsorship of this event stems from its strong belief in raising awareness of the disease, the available treatments and prevention methods, while celebrating the lives of those fighting and surviving the disease.
The event, which was attended by cancer patients and their families, focused on educating female cancer patients, those who are still struggling with breast cancer and those who have survived it, on how to ensure early detection and how to maintain their health after receiving successful treatment. The activities also included the distribution of symbolic gifts, healthy meals and recognition plaques to the doctors and medical team that presented the lecture.
This is one of a series of initiatives that ABK will be participating in this month, in the hope of making a life changing difference in relation to this common life threatening disease.
