Featuring fashion designs by Barbara Tollitt – The Inti Collection of Bali
will be presented between 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. with funds raised from the event to help fund a free mammogram program for underprivileged woman in Bali.
Part of a larger Breast Cancer Awareness Program
– “Think Pink”
seeks to increase the very low levels of early detection of breast cancer among Indonesian women in order that life-saving treatment can be given. Fear of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment sees many women in Indonesia reliant on traditional medicines and incorrectly accepting a breast cancer diagnosis as a death sentence.
By providing free mammograms to women in Bali the door will also be opened to educate women on self-examination, be aware of the symptoms of the disease and seek help in a timely manner.
Through fund raising efforts such as these the aim is for underprivileged woman to be able to obtain mammograms without cost and, when necessary remedial treatment,
The cost of a mammogram examination is Rp. 200,000 (US$22).
The cost of chemotherapy treatment is Rp. 1 million (US$111) per session.
