October: breast cancer prevention month

In October, the Hospital da Luz Oncology Center will hold a series of sessions to promote the health and well-being of women being treated for breast cancer.

October is Breast Cancer Prevention Month, and is marked annually by several organizations across the country which hold primary and secondary prevention campaigns against the disease.

The Hospital da Luz has joined this initiative, and is drawing attention to the need to maintain the well-being and quality of life for women in treatment.

You can register for these sessions, which take place at the Casas de Cidade care homes (next to the Hospital da Luz), via email at mpinheiro@hospitaldaluz.pt
