The Pink Sparkle Event is an event organized by the Kenya Cancer Association that aims to restore the self-confidence and self-worth of breast cancer survivors who have lost one or both breasts to cancer.
Kenya Cancer Association (KenCASA) is a voluntary run non-profit making organization established in Kenya in 1995 after recognition that Cancer was emerging as a leading cause of death in the country.
SOME OF OUR ACTIVITIES
Extensive cancer awareness campaigns across the country, running free breast and cervical cancer screening campaigns targeting rural population in partnership with other organisations and providing support for the establishment of cancer support network for survivors groups.
KenCASA undertook the first media training on cancer targeting all media houses where over 70 journalists were trained on pertinent issues of cancer.
KenCASA also successfully advocated for and contributed to the development of National Cancer Control Strategy of 2011, and provided leadership in the drafting the National Cancer Control and Prevention Act 2012.
More recently KenCASA successfully implemented the American Cancer Society (ACS) sponsored project called the Meet the Targets project (MTT).
KenCASA is licensed by the American Cancer Association to hold the Relay for Life event.
