M. Fanny Breast Care Institute
A woman spends an average of three working days per year on routine breast examinations; however, statistics show that only 20 percent of all suspected breast cancer cases turn out to be cancerous. At the CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center - a unit founded by Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) - women receive same-day test results for breast examinations, providing peace of mind for the patient as well as faster treatment in cases of a positive diagnosis.

It can take several days to received results from a clinic, but for those who have been diagnosed with cancer at the Institute, test results come quickly so patients can begin to receive advice and treatment options as soon as possible. To mark the 10th anniversary of the CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute, CHW has made a two-year commitment to provide improved mammography treatment for patients at this world-renowned facility, by sponsoring the Mammography Unit within the framework of CHW's Annual Campaign.
The CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute is the only such unit in Israel where everything is amalgamated into one location, including diagnosis, consulation and support. The benefits are clear - quick test results and the option to select a doctor and professional staff, which results in increased early detection and treatment for breast cancer patients. CHW Is very pleased to be able to continue our relationship with the Assaf Harofeh Medical Center through the CHW M. Fanny Comprehensive Breast Care Institute.
