Coinciding with the World Breast Cancer Day you want to kick off the campaign For Health, Sabadell moves in response to the concern of these entities committed to society. The goal: to try to lower the upward curve of new cases of breast and gynecological cancer that occur in our city, or detect them in their earliest stages.
The campaign is aimed at women in Sabadell who are between 25 and 55 years old - both healthy and cancer survivors or who are being treated - with the main aim of encouraging them to do sports. Exercise is related to a better prognosis of cancer for women who are suffering from the disease, and is also considered a preventive measure, both for women carrying a hereditary mutation and for non-carriers. Prevention is also aimed at motivating women's attendance at gynecological check-ups.
This campaign aims to transmit values such as effort, involvement and health awareness, as well as transmitting hope and life to cancer patients and carriers of a genetic mutation.
