Global Outreach Consortium, an NGO focused on providing complete health care to the underprivileged, announces a significant milestone in the fight against breast cancer with the launch of Bisayen! Ask Us! & Touch Us! Project. This is an innovative project dedicated to providing comprehensive support, education, and empowerment to breast cancer patients, their loved ones and women in general. At the thrust of this campaign, is the Toll-free Helpline 0800 332200 (MTN) and 030 8249430 (other networks).

Breast cancer remains one of the most prevalent forms of cancer affecting women worldwide and it is the number one cause of cancer diagnosis and death from cancers amongst women in Ghana. It impacts negatively on the lives of individuals, families and communities during the period of diagnosis and quest for treatment every year. In the face of such a challenging journey, access to reliable information, compassionate support, and personalized guidance can make an immense difference in a patient’s experience and outcome.
