As we are aware cancer is the third highest cause of morbidity in Kenya after infectious diseases and cardiovascular diseases.

On 6th March 2019, in Mombasa County the club held a Breast Cancer Awareness talk at Arya Samaj School organised by our able Breast Cancer Awareness Convenor Lion Tasneem Dar and her team.

Dr. Shamina Jivaji facilitated the talk.

By an audio-visual presentation Dr. Shamina emphasized on the importance of (B.S.E.) breast self-examinations as this is the main detector of any lumps or un-usual growths or cysts whether malignant or non-malignant. She even strongly said that not to go with the cultural myths of taboo or curses, but see a doctor immediately to have it checked out as early detection is curable, than once the cancer has reached to its last stage.

Around 80 girl students from the school, their mothers and teachers benefited from this talk.

The girls were very enthusiastic to spread their knowledge on these disease to their family and friends.
