COUNTY TO MARK BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer.
County Oncologist Patrick Kenei says early detection saves lives and notes men should be screened too.
“We can do better certainly in terms of survivability rates. We can do better by contributing more by coming together and saying this matters. It’s impacting all of us,” Kenei said.
It is therefore a concern to us all as we are equally at risk of contracting the disease.
Kenei termed Breast cancer as the most common type of cancer in the county and Kenya and called for early screening for early detection and treatment.
To mark the breast cancer awareness month the County Government of Nandi in collaboration with the International Cancer Institute (ICI) and Be Me Foundation will offer free Breast and Cervical Cancer screening at Meteitei Sub County Hospital in Tinderet on Friday, October 21, 2022.
