Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Abeer Sawwaf, will provide an overview of diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer as well as discuss preventive methods. Proceeds from the event will go to the Jewels of Antarctica Expedition.
Jewels of Antarctica Expedition: Under the Patronage of HH Sheikha Alyazia Bint Saif Al Nahyan, wife of HH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 16 Breast Cancer Survivors will be the first UAE breast cancer survivor team from the UAE to go to Antarctica.

A short film and book will be produced to document the expedition, the women and the landscapes. Both the film and book will be showcased during ‘Jewels of Antarctica’ 2013 Road Shows in the Region.
