Breast Cancer awareness campaign all over the World is very important says the Ambassador from France to Fiji Michel Djokovic.
In welcoming the guests at the hosting of a Pinktober morning tea organized at his residence, the ambassador Djokovic says breast cancer is everybody’s business.
He says there are free screenings in France for all the women, however only 53 percent take advantage of the initiative. About 12000 women die each year in France due to breast cancer.
Maryanne Wong Lee, 58, who has been a breast cancer survivor for 11 years, says her case was mild and she was one of the early detection.
She says early detection makes a big difference.
The morning tea managed to raise $1000 in donations for the Fiji Cancer Society.
