The Breast Cancer Awareness committee on 16th November 2016 continued to raise awareness to the community through their talk. We had the privileged of talking to the female students, teachers and mothers at MSB Educational Institute. The talk attendees totaled 70. The Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari members that were present included our very own knowledgeable and able facilitator Lion Dr. Mala Jamal, Lion Tasneem Dar, Lion Amena Ganiwalla, Lion Kamaljeet Kaur, Lion Tasneem Pirbhai, Lion Maria Haji and Club President Lion Linda Shuma.
One of the mother who is a breast cancer survivor also shared her testimony at the end of the talk. She encouraged everyone present to be consistent at performing breast self-examinations and in the event that they did observe something abnormal to seek appropriate medical assistance. She let all present know that breast cancer is not equal to a death sentence saying that if diagnosed with it follow through the recommended treatment., keep a positive attitude towards life, pray and meditate.
President Lion Linda appreciated the school administration for according us the opportunity to reach out to the school. She said that she hoped that all present did find the talk helpful and enlightening for them.
