WHO ARE WE
Pi Women’s Cancers Association was established under the name of Pink Traces Association in 2014 with the aim of raising public awareness about breast cancer and all women’s cancers -ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers- and to support patients with financial difficulties in diagnosis and treatment. In other words, the association aims to be the hand on the shoulders of the patients and their relatives in this very important struggle. It aims to raise awareness by telling and applying the truth. In order to make this as common as possible, it prepares different, qualified and comprehensive projects.
The association is the most important supporter of women who are fighting women’s cancers during and after the treatment, and aims to ensure that women who have the disease continue their lives as strong women who are not afraid of the disease and its aftermath.
