Américas Amigas turns 15!

It has been a journey marked by a lot of learning and an ever stronger desire to spread information and awareness about breast cancer, and to promote access to detection and diagnosis of the disease for the socially vulnerable population.

In these 15 years, we have matured and overcome great challenges, always motivated by the desire to reduce breast cancer mortality in our country. And our results fill us with pride: more than 1,150,000 mammograms, more than 80,000 other tests and more than 35,000 hours of training for health professionals, in addition to the 23 mammography machines donated to public and philanthropic hospitals from the north to the south of Brazil.

In the midst of so much positive data also came recognition: we received the Transparent NGO Seal, the Donate Seal and we are among the 100 best NGOs in Brazil for the second year running. These achievements fill us with pride, but at the same time increase our responsibility and encourage us to expand our activities.

This whole story began in 2009, when our founders came together to transform the breast cancer scenario in Brazil. We are very grateful to them. We are also grateful for all the support received from our friends, followers, supporters, partners, sponsors and volunteers. This 15th anniversary celebration belongs to all of us!

Together we are stronger!
