Cancer not a disease, it’s a challenge for Marshall

Cancer should not be seen as a disease but a challenge.
These were the words of breast cancer survivor, Deputy Director Forensic Services SP Margaret Marshall.
She believes cancer has brought her on her feet and made her realize her value in the family.
Marshall was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 41 and denied it by not telling anyone.
“If you check my records except for one time I was overseas I didn’t attend my RFL. For all my RFL I have attended and I have been the first one at the sight waiting for officers to join me. I don’t have cancer.”
Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho believes there is always hope in managing the illness.
“It’s often said that when someone has cancer the whole family and loved ones suffers to. While we remember those who have lost the battle to cancer we must also remember that there is also hope. Everyone either directly or indirectly knows a woman who has or had breast cancer.”
This month has been dedicated to Pinktober which is being utilized to create awareness on breast cancer which not only affects women but men as well.
