About our initiative

DearMamma is a worldwide breast cancer awareness campaign also for the poorest and illiterate women.
DearMamma is a project of The DEAR Foundation.

Major goals

Sound medical information

Providing reliable medical information about breast cancer for the poorest women around the world – especially for illiterate women who have been totally neglected by the health- or pharma-industry due to lack of spending capacity.

Breaking the taboo

Encouraging women to overcome their shame about having breast cancer, chemotherapy and mastectomies.

Early detection – the cheapest and most powerful resource

Raising awareness of breast cancer, especially in societies with little cancer experience and limited resources.

German actress Veronica Ferres supports DearMamma

«My name is Veronica Ferres and I support this very special breast cancer awareness campaign initiated by Sonja Dinner from all my heart!

Most of us have access to excellent medical systems. This is not the case for millions of women worldwide. I would like to support these women with my voice and kindly ask you to carry this unique and fantastic campaign for illiterate women into the world of the poorest women since neither industry nor health system care about them as they have no buying power. DearMamma is one of the best global projects against breast cancer I know.

Please help me and Sonja to reach millions of women worldwide and try to prevent millions of mothers from dying just because they do not know what breast cancer is and how they can protect themselves. »

Women's health is the key for social development

  • Despite widespread information about breast cancer, there is no available resource for illiterate women – a particularly vulnerable population
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women around the world
  • Millions of women worldwide will be diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Far over half a million women worldwide die of breast cancer every year

The majority of deaths caused by breast cancer occur in low and middle-income countries where women are diagnosed late due to shame, lack of awareness and barriers to health services.
