The YouWeCan team from Shoolini University organised a cancer screening camp at Air Force station, Kasauli on November 23 to create awareness of common cancer like oral cavity, clinical breast examination, and early detection of cancer of the breast.

The camp was organised for the Air Force personnel and their families. The volunteers, with the help of medical personnel, helped those patients who were diagnosed positive. They informed them about the treatment and follow-ups so that this large-scale morbidity and mortality of cancer can easily be minimised. Air Force personnel were informed that it can be done through well-planned cancer education, time to time screening, and early detection programs.

Volunteers got a wonderful opportunity to work under the guidance of Dean Students Welfare Ms Poonam Nanda. Around 160 Air Force personnel and their family members above 25 years of age were examined in the camp.

All participants underwent OVI for oral cavity cancer, and all women participants underwent CBE for breast cancer screening and for the general checkup which was carried out by the Youwecan doctors’ team.

Volunteers give detailed information to women participants about breast cancer and its symptoms, preventive measures, treatment and self-examination and they would surely pass on this information to their family members and friends.

YouWeCan is a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) backed by cancer survivor and former star Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. The organisation aims to spread cancer awareness and organise medical aid for those afflicted with cancer
