One In Nine

One in Nine, a registered non-profit organization, has set itself the following goals: to position breast cancer and breast health awareness on the national agenda in Israel, to improve the services and support mechanisms available to women with breast cancer and those close to them, and to empower women to assume responsibility for their health and encourage them to become assertive health service consumers. Nurit Tolnai established One in Nine following her recovery from the disease. She decided to take action after facing numerous difficulties during her own recovery process. Subsequently many additional breast cancer survivors joined the Association, spurred on by their own journeys of recovery and a determination to help others. Their joint contribution in terms of experience and support has become a pillar of strength for other women coping with (and beating) breast cancer.
