Meet the brains behind Breast Health Foundation

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it is about educating people about the disease.

The early detection of breast cancer is one of the most important undertakings to successfully treat the disease.

Head of the Helen Joseph and Netcare Breast Care Centre Professor Carol Benn has established the Breast Health Foundation to improve women's health care.

The foundation has uplifted women in society and opened channels for public awareness of breast health.

I can't do everything, it is all about strength and teams. I am really good at ideas.
