"Lingkod Kababaihan", Free Breast Cancer Awareness with Clinical Breast Exam in Quezon City

By Estelle Piencenaves, November 29, 2011

Last Friday, November 25, Bessie B. Legarda Memorial Foundation (BBLMF) in cooperation with Gift2Life Foundation conducted another Lingkod Kababaihan medical mission in Tandang Sora, Quezon City.

While the breast examinations were ongoing, those who were waiting and their companions listened to a lecture on health and watched a video presentation on the importance of early detection.

The Lingkod Kababaihan, launched January this year, is an outreach project of BBL and Gift2Life. In the past months, the team of dedicated doctors and staff has visited different cities with the objective of creating greater awareness on breast cancer and helping indigent women with their breast cancer treatments.

The BBL Foundation, established by Senator Loren Legarda in 2000, remains steadfast in its commitment to help women as well as men in the prevention of this dreaded disease.
