UDE professor encourages charity run

Raising awareness for breast cancer sufferers

On May 14, a charity run will take place in the Bürgerpark in Dorsten under the motto “Fighting breast cancer together”. The impetus for the run came from CENIDE member Prof. Dr. Khadijeh Mohri and her family, who recently overcame the disease themselves. The goal of the event is to raise awareness about breast cancer and collect donations. In addition to information and conversation opportunities for breast cancer patients, friends and family, self-help opportunities and wigs will be available. The proceeds will go to the breast center at the St. Elisabeth Hospital in Dorsten and the support association of the breast center at the Evangelische Kliniken Gelsenkirchen.

The event was the brainchild of Prof. Dr. Khadijeh Mohri, who was at the peak of her career when she discovered a lump in her breast in November 2021. She had to inform her colleagues, superiors and her two children about her breast cancer diagnosis. Having overcome the disease, she and her family are hopeful for a cancer-free future. However, the family wants to continue to raise awareness about breast cancer.

On January 14, the website www.brustkrebshilfe-dorsten.de will open for registration for the sponsored run. The run is embedded in numerous information and conversation opportunities for breast cancer patients, their friends and family members. The donations will go to the breast center at the St. Elisabeth Hospital in Dorsten and to the support association of the breast center at the Evangelische Kliniken Gelsenkirchen. Ali Abdali, Mohri’s husband, said, ” Both have many patients from Dorsten, so their services, which go beyond mere treatment, also benefit Dorsten residents.” Chief physician Dr. Simone Sowa is part of the team of medical experts who will be available on May 14 to provide information about the charity run. But it will also be about self-help offers or wigs.

Three running distances will be offered: 800 meters (start at 10:30 a.m.), 2,500 meters (start at 11 a.m.) and 5,000 meters (start at 11:30 a.m.). Walkers and fast runners are equally welcome. The registration fee is 10 euros for adults and 5 euros for children.
