The Uganda Women's Cancer Support Organisation

We Can Survive Cancer!

Uganda Women’s Cancer Support Organization UWOCASO is a local NGO registered in 2007 and a membership organization with an established secretariat, Board of Directors and a strong network of volunteers. UWOCASO was started in 2004 by five women breast cancer survivors with an objective of raising awareness so that women can adopt practices of Breast Self Examination (BSE) regular screening and reporting early for treatment. In addition it was created to offer psycho-social support to breast and cervical cancer patients and their families. Over the years UWOCASO has expanded to engage with all cancers affecting women and membership has grown to include all women who have survived or living with cancers. UWOCASO has grown from five members at its creation to 100 members today and many of the members are active volunteers with the organization. UWOCASO believes in early detection, increasing survival and improving the quality of life of those living with the disease. About UWOCASO
