Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed globally in October, as an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. The campaign’s mission is to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.

Le Mirage Real Estate, Qatar’s leading real estate development and property management company, organized a seminar as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative conducted by ‘Screen For Life’, Qatar’s National Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening program led by Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC).

During this seminar, the ‘Screen for Life’ team presented a lecture about breast cancer symptoms, stages and prevention methods, in addition to hosting the screening mobile unit at the Le Mirage Icon to offer free Mammogram screening, which is the early detection test every woman between 45-69 should have once every 3 years. The event was attended by ladies from all Le Mirage Real Estate properties including Le Mirage Icon, Le Mirage Executive Apartments, Le Mirage Village, Le Mirage Residence, Le Mirage Elite etc.
