What you need to know about Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign if You are in Doha

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, there is a lot that Qatar does for you that I think is not quite aware in the public. I was invited to be part of the Intercontinental Doha The City’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, and came across all this information that was so unknown to me before, and probably to many of you as well, and thought I would share it here:

The Breast and Bowel Screening Program is a life-saving population-based initiative that aims to promote education, awareness and early detection of breast and bowel cancer in Qatar. Titled ‘Screen for Life’, it is being conducted under Qatar’s National Cancer Program which represents a shift towards preventive and community-based care. The program encourages women aged 45-69 years with no symptoms to receive breast cancer screening through mammography, which is generally considered safe, quick, and painless. The Ministry of Public Health recommends breast cancer screening every three years.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

  • A persistent lump in the breast
  • One or more lumps in the armpit
  • Changes in the shape or size of the breasts, particularly if only one breast changes.
  • Breast skin changes, such as dimpling, puckering, redness, increased warmth, thickening or itching.
  • Nipple changes, such as sudden inversion, discharge or scaling.

What can I do to lower my risk?

  • Get atleast 150 minutes per week of aerobic activity
  • Breastfeed for as long as possible
  • Consult your doctor to limit the dose and duration of hormone therapy
  • Avoid exposure to radiation and environmental pollution.
  • Don’t drink alcohol
  • Don’t smoke
  • Control your weight

What is a mammogram?

A screening mammogram is a low x-ray exam of the breasts to look for changes that are not normal. A mammogram is used as part of a screening plan to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Mammogram is generally considered safe, quick, and relatively painless.

If you would like to schedule a screening for yourself or someone dear and near to you, contact 800 1112 or write to info@screenforlife.qa

True Beauty can not be put in words,
Pictures do no justice to them either,
It must be felt! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Blue skies and green leaves -
Naturally beautiful just like you!
Where social media feeds us with the latest launches and must-haves everyday, it sometimes becomes hard to remember what we are blessed with.
A reminder to myself first πŸ™‚
This Ramadan let us take time to reflect on how blessed we are, and how grateful we need to be for having being blessed with so much from clean water to safe homes - the needs which a lot of people are not priveleged to. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸšΏπŸšΏπŸ’§πŸ’§πŸ‡ΆπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΆπŸ‡¦

Look, ladies, there's going to be a bunch of people/memes/articles/sheikhs/etc telling you that you can't do it. That you should take it easy. That they get it, your kids are young, your body is weak, your kitchen is small and your family is big, your life is HARD, you simply cannot achieve your worship goals so don't even try, its okay, there, there, pat, pat.
I'm here to tell you the exact opposite. I'm here to tell you: Yes You Can. I'm here to tell you that yes your life is is tough but you are tougher. I'm here to remind you that you push yourself all year. I see it. I see your willpower. And your strength. Your stubborn refusal to give in to all the difficult, trying circumstances of your life.
You are a champion.
And champions don't give up right before the actual race starts!
All year, we build ourselves emotionally and physically for Ramadan. THIS is the main event. This is where you get to test the mettle for yourself where all year you've been testing it for others.
Ramadan is for YOU. So get up. Push yourself. Set lofty targets and work your behind off trying to reach them. The pleasure is in the reaching. In the striving. NOT in the achieving. The achieving and assessment of achieving, we leave it to Him. That's not our business. We just keep ourselves busy trying.Don't NOT try because some one (a man probably) thinks you don't have it in you.
You do.Words as picked up from Drama Mama

When hotels really go out of their way to make moments memorable - a pretty little spread on our bed when we checked into the room at @movenpickjbrComing soon on my blog - a review of this property!This is the age of experience, and when it comes to hospitality, companies that go out of their way to pay attention to small details and make your stay as memorable, those are the tales you will always want to share.
In my case @movenpickjbr was a star except for the fact that they addressed me as Mr. Khansa all the time or am not sure if they thought Mr. M's name was Khansa πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
