The YANA Project
Represents the You Are Not Alone: Breast and Ovarian Cancer Project
An Inspire Initiative Project under Charisma Movement. It is a one-year awareness campaign leading up to a one-day event in August 2021. The main objective of the event is to raise awareness on Breast and Ovarian cancer. We aim to educate people on how to minimise their risk of contracting the disease, provide a platform that encourages emotional care for patients and their loved ones, as well as support women empowerment in Malaysia.

What we do
Fundraising campaign (will be updated soon!) where we donate most of the proceeds to one Cancer Organisation, Breast Cancer Support Group Johor Bahru (BCSGJB), and one Ovarian cancer support organisation (will be updated soon too!)
We are also having a one-day event in August 2021 (tentatively on a virtual platform) to discuss both issues in more depth with health professionals, cancer fighters and survivors, and caregivers. Follow our social media for progress updates.
