Miss Ghana Foundation, Airport Women’s Hospital organise free breast cancer screening


The Miss Ghana Foundation, in partnership with Airport Women’s Hospital, organised a free breast cancer screening for students, staff and Alumni of Datus Complex Schools as well as the general public. The programme was held on the premises of the School in Tema.

The exercise, which was spearheaded by the Miss Ghana Foundation, formed part of activities commemorating the Breast Cancer Awareness Month observed in October every year. The event was also held to celebrate the founder of the school as part of activities marking their 60th anniversary.

Prior to the screening, Dr. Gertrude Amedior, a doctor at Airport Women’s Hospital, alongside Miss Ghana 2022 winner – Miriam Xorlasi Todzeagbo and her two runners-up – Rocklyn Krampah and Irene Vanessa Vifah, who are the ambassadors for the foundation took the participants through how to self-examine the breasts for cancer symptoms.

Miss Todzeagbo advised them to always check their breasts for symptoms and not wait for October to go for breast screening, adding that: “Knowing how to do it personally helps in early detection”.

The Breast Cancer Awareness Month is commemorated in October every year across the world to increase awareness of early diagnosis and treatment, as well as give palliative care for women suffering from the disease.

Breast cancer is the most common disease in women worldwide, and one of the leading causes of death. The breast cancer screening was proudly supported by Bel Aqua, Bel Beverages, Serz Events, Delsenita Bakes and Catering Services, Aimarnoir’s Kitchen, and DBK’s Catering Service.
