MEDIA INFORMATION – The world’s first breast cancer education app for women who can neither read nor write

October 3, 2018 – For over ten years, the Swiss charity The DEAR Foundation (TDF) and its president Sonja Dinner have been committed to lifting the taboo on breast cancer. Every day, Sonja Dinner is confronted with the consequences that this insidious disease has for women and their children for whom preventive medicine is still out of reach. Self-examination of the breasts and the resulting early detection of breast cancer can save lives. This situation has prompted Sonja Dinner to develop a prevention app, the first of its kind in the world, which will be unveiled on 3 October in Zurich. She wants to use it to reach a billion women across the globe, one million of them in the first year of the project.
