The program aimed to make the audience understand the importance of such self-test and how it helps to avoid the breast cancer as early as the discovery. Some questions about the disease’s facts and opinions are raised and answer by the organization. Afterwards, an invited speaker, Mr. Emerson Galang-Aliswag, the President of the Aliswag Review Center (ARC) talked about the major causes of the disease, which he said the sleeplessness contributes more than anything else.

The program ended with an intermission by Joaquin Raymund Muñoz and the certification of the speaker by the Director of Marketing and Communications Office, Ms. Ivory, Joy C. Malinao and its Coordinator, Ms. Shara Mae F. Toyoto.
