Beat Breast Cancer – Free Mammogram drive in Dubai

Beat Cancer

This year Safe and Sound are giving away free mammograms to low income women in Dubai, women who ordinarily would not be able to afford this life saving scan which normally costs between AED 400 – 750, as a result of the very succesfull 2009 Walkathon which you all so heartfully supported.

How to nominate someone:

  • identify a woman who fits the criteria
  • speak to her about the project

  5. Hi Elvira and Majda. I have requested to give you free mammograms if you cannot afford it. Free mammograms are given to people who really cant afford. If you can afford then please let someone deserving have it. If you cant afford then please send me your contact details so that I can forward them to Safe and Sound. You should be 40+ and the mammograms will take place only after the the Pink Walkathon which will take place on Nov 5th. http://www.safeandsound.ae/pink_walkathon.asp

  9. Dear Ravoof,
    I am a student of Heritage University located in the U.S. and I am also the president of the Student Government Association. I wish to create a ‘Mammogram Drive’ for the local community. This university is surrounded by poverty and there is desperate need for such an event to happen. I would love to get some feedback or advice as to how to start this great cause. I welcome the opportunity to get in contact with you.

    Kindest Regards,
    Itzel

  10. hi Ravoof,

    can i kindly know why you do not offer free mamograms to persons below 40 years.

    regards
    perpetual

  11. Hi Perpetual.

    Please note that I am not providing the FREE mammograms. It is done by the government and a few private organisations.

    Normally it is understood (by research), that women tend to get lumps after 40 years. Another reason is to avoid everyone availing the services FREE and not giving a chance to women who actually require it. That doesnt mean to say women of lesser age do not get it. You can always do a mammogram anywhere, no matter how old you are, but you have to pay. I heard it is normally around AED 700 (please correct me if I am wrong).

    I wish you a healthy life.

  12. Hi, i need a free mammogram test. Am 41 yrs. old and i don’t have a medical insurance to afford the test.
