The Lemon Project

The Lemon Project is RFTC Japan’s education initiative to bring greater awareness about breast cancer. Many have heard of breast cancer; however, not many know what symptoms to look for or how to conduct self-examinations. This educational session provides information about the signs of breast cancer and how to conduct self-examinations, using lemons!

The campaign material used is designed and contributed by Worldwide Breast Cancer.
