#DidYouKnow : Despite the perception that breast cancer is a dangerous condition where 1 in every 14 women in Singapore will develop before the age of 75, only 2 in 5 women below the age of 45 has ever performed any form of medical breast checks.
A monthly breast self-examination is critical, does not take up much time and can even be done while showering! To learn how, watch this video, https://goo.gl/gZXY49 and share it with your friends.

Smita is a breast cancer survivor and volunteer of BCF. She found out about her condition following a regular mammogram screening in 2015.
Thankfully, women who are diagnosed in the early stages e.g. stage 1 of breast cancer, have a 91% chance of surviving beyond 5 years as compared to those discovered at the later stages. Thus, three months after Smita had her operations, she was able to go on a vacation!
Early detection saves lives and breasts, and Smita is a great example of this!
