On 14th February 2016 the ladies of Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari carried out a Breast Cancer Awareness Talk at the Sikh Temple Mombasa. After a sumptuous Brunch they all moved on to a well prepared room to share on the importance of regular self-breast examination and the need to take immediate action and seek medical advice in the event that one notices something irregular during these examinations.
After the talk given by Lion Dr. Mala a few of the ladies at the Sikh Temple asked some questions and later on two of the ladies from the temple shared their experience. One of them has been cancer free for the last fifteen years while the other had a mastectomy not too long ago and is still undergoing treatment.
The Medical Fund of Sri Guru Singh Sabha were very thankful to Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari for reaching out to them with such a talk and even presented a cheque of five thousand to be used in Breast Cancer Awareness activities.
If you feel this talk can be useful to you and other ladies in your community you can contact our club and request for a similar talk to be held in the near future.
