Emad Shash: Celebrating Milestones of Hope and Healing!

Emad Shash, Medical Dircetor of National Cancer Institute, Cairo University, shared on LinkedIn:

“Celebrating Milestones of Hope and Healing!

Today marks a significant milestone for myself. I celebrate the 5th anniversary of being in charge of the Breast Cancer Comprehensive Center of the National Cancer Center, coinciding with the center’s remarkable 10-year journey. Looking back, I am overwhelmed with pride and gratitude for the incredible progress we’ve made.

In the past five years, our collective efforts have touched the lives of countless individuals battling breast cancer. Together with my dedicated colleagues and the brave patients we serve, we have achieved remarkable milestones. We’ve witnessed over half a million outpatient visits, performed more than 12,000 breast cancer surgeries, and conducted over 200,000 chemotherapy-day case sessions.

Our commitment to patient-centered care has been at the heart of our mission. Through innovative initiatives like the patient education program, which has been empowering patients since March 2023, and the patient navigation program launched in April 2022, we’ve been able to provide comprehensive support to those in need.

I am especially proud to announce the opening of our new outpatient clinic complex, meticulously designed for comfort and ease. Additionally, our state-of-the-art radiotherapy facility, operational since December 2022, has already served over a thousand patients and delivered 10,000 radiotherapy sessions, offering hope and healing to many.

Our journey doesn’t end here; we are eagerly anticipating the completion of the ongoing renovation and upgrade project by quarter one of 2024. These enhancements will ensure that our patients receive the best care possible in a supportive and healing environment.

None of these achievements would have been possible without the dedication and passion of our incredible team and the unwavering courage of our patients. As we celebrate these milestones, let us also renew our commitment to making a difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. Together, we stand as a beacon of hope, strength, and healing. Here’s to many more years of making a positive impact and spreading awareness about breast cancer.”
