What's on my mind? Today marks the end of Global 2020 October Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
At BCIEA we are immensely Thank ful for all those who supported and engaged in all our activities all over the world! But we wish to inform everybody that Breast Cancer Awareness is our Mission and Purpose and that October only intensifies our energy!
We Must Keep on Keeping on until we no longer have late stage presentations of this disease, no fear that prevents patients from seeking medical early detection, no stigma that surrounds breast cancer, no myths, taboo, misinformation, shame and guilt.
Not until we have access to sustainable breast cancer medical services, diagnosis, treatment, care and support with affordable drugs and specialized professionals and infrastructures.
Not until we have viable screening, vaccines and evidence based knowledge of what really causes breast cancer so that a CURE can be established.
Is this too much? YES it is. Can it be DONE? Mandela said:
"It always seems impossible until its done"
How can we then think we could only depend only on October?

Sunday, October 18th 2020 was a special Day at the Pink Wellness House in Gihanga Village.
BCIEA welcomed a small group of Gihanga Village Leaders and members of the village plus medical professionals, breast cancer patients, survivors and youth for a Breast Cancer Awareness Meeting and Fellowship.
Gihanga is one of the Villages implementing our program known as: Fighting Breast Cancer One Smartphone per Village and our College Student Volunteers, Lysiane and Yves were recognized and officially introduced. Two survivors gave their moving and powerful testimonies, we honored those who are no longer with us because of Breast Cancer with a moment of silence and pledged to encourage and support those undergoing treatment.
Our Youth Volunteers graced the guests with interactive singing and reminded us the importance of physical activity as one way of reducing our cancer risk. Guests listened to life saving Information from BCIEA founder and doctors that wàs followed by a Q & A session.
It was amazing to witness how much the guests appreciated what they heard and how little they knew about breast cancer. A few people admitted they really didn't know anything about their breasts, there was no need to look at them. Men didn't know anything about male breast cancer.
The Group loved our
Ikunde = Love Yourself Imenye = Know Yourself and Isuzumishe = Get Checked and vowed to practice the THREE from then on.
The Leader of the Village who is a lady thanked and called upon every body to take action to fight Breast Cancer in Gihanga Village and she pledged to share her newly acquired information and to support our two Student Volunteers as they create breast cancer awareness in Gihanga Village especially during Umuganda and Umugoroba wababyeyi.
We are very thankful to New Times for covering this event and for Rwanda NCD Alliance, RBC's support, Village Leadership and all guests who manages to attend in spite of the rain. Together we are strong.

This is the bravest daughter any father could wish for. He must have done something good to instil truth into her for her to break away from him at a time like this? This should help those people struggling with what do on November 3, 2020. We can DETOX our
Country, but it will take all of us to do the Detoxing Process

When we talk about Awareness on one aspect of life, it opens Doors to ALL dimensions of LIFE ...
Reminds me the Bible verse:
"For us who are many are members of one body ...."
When something happens to one member/part of your body, the entire Body is affected.
BE AWARE TAKE CARE OF YOUR
BREASTS! (and other parts)

Yes, we are pushing for AWARENESS and Early Detection, GREAT MOVES, but we owe it to her and her generation to find the CURE for Breast Cancer! So much money, time and energy have and are going into RESEARCH---- It's about
Time something happened! Breast Cancer has become a major business, so it appears?
Our youngest advocate is 7 years old today and I can only tell her "we've made progress, no cure yet" My/Our wish, for I know I speak for many others, is live to be able to look into her
Eyes, and say, "We have the Cure for Breast Cancer!" I hope and pray it will be before her
"Boobies grow" she is 7 now? Scientists, get to work as time is of essence!

#BCIEA BREAST CANCER AWARENESS CHALLENGE
Target: Breast Cancer Advocates
Friends & Supporters

Yes, COVID19 hit us and changed things we have taken for granted?
Who can imagine such a miniscure virus could enforce lockdowns and social distancing and almost freeze all action in the entire world?
I cannot stop thinking about October without our favorite Ulinzi Breast Cancer Awareness Walk or Our Ulinzi Fundraising Dinner.
How are things with you, fellow Advocates?
Is the Digital Approach working for you?
How about the badly needed human touch craved by our patients and survivors--- sometimes the only and last thing a patient is asking for?

Let's not let COVID19 have the last word!
It cannot Touch Our Spirit, We Cannot be Silenced, We Cannot Give Up!

With a New Mindset and New Perspective,
The Fight Goes on even more Fiercely than before- through intentional Collaboration.
Fellow Advocates think and respond to this challenge, Please.
#Collaboration challenges us to Think, Articulate and Receive Clarity about our skills,
Tools, Talents and Competencies.
This serves as a mirror that gives us a glimpse of our strengths and weaknesses.
Because two (or more) heads are
better than one, As we say: TURIKUMWE =
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER, Work Better and Plug each other's Gaps.

Please accept BCIEA's 2020 Awareness
Collaboration Challenge by posting one way you/organization can/will collaborate and
Pass the Challenge to your friends.

TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER

Short version: do not wear items that make a political statement or favor a candidate or position when you vote in person.

“Advice from a poll worker:
I’m reaching out to women I know who are active on private Democratic FB groups. And I know you probably know all this, but I’m covering all my bases...
More and more, I’m seeing women announcing they will be voting with shirts, buttons, masks or hats that say “Ruth Sent Me”, or something similar.
As a poll worker for many years, I know that nothing political is allowed within the polling place ( including BLM shirts, for example.) And unfortunately, this can be interpreted by whoever is in charge. It could mean, in some cases, that somebody wearing a shirt they don’t believe is political can be denied the right to vote after waiting in line for hours.
While I love the sentiment, I am VERY afraid of rampant voter suppression, and the other side will use ANY excuse to deny a legitimate voter the right to cast their ballot.
We need to approach this election strategically, and vote smarter and cleaner than we ever have before. And we need to understand that the other side will do what it takes to advance their agenda.
We need to vote in record numbers. But we need to vote SMART. We can wear that wonderful “Ruth Sent Me” shirt or mask when we get home, and raise a glass in her memory.
Please copy, or paraphrase and share with the groups you are members of, as appropriate. We need to get the word out so that every vote counts! We all know what’s at stake....”

#BCIEA - Even in the face of rising cancer incidence, it is possible for everyone to reduce their cancer risk by adopting a healthy lifestyle and for cancer survivors to cut their risk of a recurrence. “This is a myth''. In fact, specific inherited genes only cause about 5-10% of all cancers. For the vast majority of us, the risk of getting cancer can be reduced by changes in our lifestyle. Cutting smoking, reducing the amount of alcohol you drink and maintaining a healthy weight are key to cancer prevention.” Being mindful of the types of foods you eat is just one of the things you can do to reduce your risk of developing cancer. World Cancer Day 4th February, 2019 is approaching.
BCIEA ; way of mobilizing every party such public or non-public institutions to be part of prevention of cancer through risk factors etc. We are living , we are stable, we can be a tool to protect others. Tell your friends and your friends tell their friends that world cancer day is coming soon. I am a survivor, i will inspire different generations #yourcontributionisneeded #Canceriseverybodybusiness #IAMandIwill
World Cancer Day is the one singular initiative under which the entire world can unite together in the fight against the global cancer epidemic.
