Our purpose again in 2022 is to focus on diagnosis and treatment and raise funds to improve breast cancer outcomes, with the specific goal of purchasing biopsy needles and breast tissue markers, critical to optimal care and yet not adequately covered by the State

Out suite of events include partnership with the Vilnius Marathon to provide information about cancer prevention including self breast-exams, our #pinkwavelt wrapped monuments to promote awareness, and our #pinkwave22 pink bus screening tour to enable women in less accessible regions to obtain mammography and other critical preventive and diagnostic care in October 2022, International Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

About Blossom of Hope

Lithuania sees 1700 new breast cancer cases every year, the most common cancer in women with a 10% lifetime risk.

Despite the incidence rate of breast cancer in Lithuania being below the European average, the mortality rate is higher than the European average
(Ferlay, J et al, 2018).
90% of women with breast cancer recover with early detection and the best available treatment and care.

For the past 14 years, IWAV has mobilized the Lithuanian and international business, artistic, diplomatic and medical communities around supporting breast cancer care in Lithuania. Over the course of its first 13 years, Blossom of Hope has raised 300 000€ to purchase and distribute free medical supplies for cancer diagnostics to leading hospitals.
