Early Diagnosis

Created in 2015, the Exam Donation Program aims to promote access to early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer for people in socially vulnerable situations. The donated exams, which include mammography, ultrasound, MRI, biopsy (Core, FNAC and Mammotomy), anatomopathological analysis and immunohistochemical analysis, are carried out in partner hospitals and clinics or during actions in which the exams are carried out in a mobile unit (cart) taken to regions that lack access to these exams.

About the project

The Americas Friends Program for the Donation of Breast Cancer Detection and Diagnosis Tests takes place throughout the year throughout Brazil. In addition to donating exams in clinics, laboratories and partner hospitals throughout Brazil, the program also includes free care and exams in Mobile Units (carts and ships).

Every year during the Pink October Campaign, the actions are intensified and the cart travels through communities in the municipality of São Paulo, municipalities in the metropolitan region and cities on the coast and in the interior of the state.

All the people who come to the clinic with a change in their mammogram are taken in by the Américas Amigas Patient Navigation Program, all the necessary procedures are carried out free of charge and they are followed up until the diagnosis is clarified.

Since 2015, more than 80,000 exams have been donated.
