A leading player in the real estate industry, Adron Homes and Properties has flagged its yearly breast cancer awareness campaign with the theme “Recognise, Educate and Inspire as We Rise Together.”
According to the World Health Organization, 2.3 million women worldwide were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, while 685,000 people worldwide died from the disease in that same year.
Also, it has been reported that Nigeria experiences hundreds of cancer cases each year. Although women are more likely to be at risk for breast cancer, men account for between 0.5 and 1% of cases.
Like every year, Adron Homes commenced the Breast Cancer Campaign this year with a focus on the well-being of the workforce and clients, particularly the females, as research indicates that women are more vulnerable.
Adron Homes and Pink Clinic collaborated on the awareness and screening campaign, which educates participants about breast cancer, how to make purposeful lifestyle choices, and how to reduce their risk of developing the disease. The women were also screened for any potential traces or signs of early detection.
Doctor Linda Keku stated that getting at least three times a week of exercise protects against cancer. She also mentioned that nursing women can prevent breast cancer by breastfeeding their children.
The most crucial thing is getting up to 8 hours and breast screening.
The executive director of Adron Homes, Olori Aderonke Emmanuel King, reaffirmed the company’s dedication to the welfare of its employees in her remarks.
She said, “We at Adron Homes believe that health is wealth, and that is why we have brought the breast cancer awareness campaign in-house, because our female staff is at the center of our organization, and we uphold equal work opportunities.”
She stated that “as the most prevalent type of cancer, breast cancer continues to rank as the fifth highest cause of cancer death worldwide.”
Olori Aderonke added, “This year, Adron Homes is offering free breast cancer screenings to all members of staff. Early detection saves lives. Take advantage of this chance to get screened. Our top priority at Adon Homes is healthy health.”
