Bangkok Hospital Pattaya hosted a volunteer “Save Your Breast Project” to sew bra inserts for mastectomy patients recovering from breast cancer.

Dr. Tapanutt Likhitmaskul opened the Oct. 21 event cosponsored by Phra­mong­kutklao Hospital and supported by the Bang­lamung Volunteering Club led by Wanchai Sanngame.

Wanchai said the club wanted to raise awareness among women about breast cancer including prevention, self-checks and screenings.

Volunteers sewed inserts for women who underwent mastectomies at Phramong­kutklao.

Tapanutt said women should begin doing self-checks at age 20 and those over 35 should undergo mammograms once a year or as frequently as their physician advises.
