Mother's Day Campaign

Every Mother’s Day, Akebono-kai members of some prefectural branches hand out tissues to the public to raise awareness about breast cancer. There were 23 prefectures which joined the Campaign this year.

The main messages are:

1) Mothers、let’s save our lives from breast cancer.

2) The importance of early detection with instructions on how to conduct Breast Self-Examination.

These events are covered by the local media, so the messages reach a wider audience. In addition, a sense of well-being of the volunteers is strengthened as a result of their contribution to the society. This is also a very important aim of this campaign.
