Cancer cannot be treated if it cannot be diagnosed.
|Dr Agnes Moses|
Dr Moses: many thanks for making time in your day to give the lecture and chair the discussion groups.
|Blandina and Vanessa|
survivors: Blandina Khondowe. Since the diagnosis and treatment of her breast cancer (I have told her story in previous blogs), she has become an avid campaigner for the rights of women with breast cancer. She has launched a 2 pronged campaign. She is campaigning for better diagnostic facilities to be available to all women and for comprehensive cancer management to be available in Malawi. She was in a privileged position and had the resources to travel to India for her treatment and believes that all women with breast cancer should receive the same level of care.
I would like to thank the UNC and the ministry of health in Malawi for inviting us to be part of their oncology project and once again thank Dr Lily Gutnik and our sponsors for ensuring the course's success.
