Situation in Place
Sonja Dinner, founder of the DearMamma initiative, works with the women in place since more than a decade. She describes the situation as follows: "Some women don't even dare to say the word breast cancer out loud because they are afraid of contracting it." Targeted informational events are designed to alleviate women's fear of the unknown. "They are trained in how to use the DearMamma app to perform the breast exam in their privacy of their own homes. As a result, the women themselves become ambassadors of their community," explains Dinner.
