At The Cancerserve Foundation Launch
I attended the launch of Cancerserve Foundation last week. I was totally touched by a story of a cancer survivor who spoke. She was fortunate to have a supportive spouse and family, I believe this contributed so much to her recovery. Support is always a key pillar in our lives. I commend all organizations and practitioners who continue to fight for better healthcare, and I recommend we should all play a part in our individual capacities.
October is the Breast Cancer Awareness month worldwide. Women and men are encouraged to get screened for breast cancer. I believe that it is important to come together and work towards early detection and also education around the condition.Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in Zimbabwe affecting women (according to 2012 statistics, the third most common, after Cervical cancer and Kaposi’s Sarcoma).
PS: It is Pink Day on Friday 5th October. Let’s show support, wear something pink!
