A warrior in her own terms, Miriama Rosova is encouraging women to stop ignoring signs of abnormality due to fear and embarrassment.

“Most abnormalities are not cancer, and if it is cancer, give yourselves the best chance of a successful treatment. Take advantage of breast, cervical, and prostate screening opportunities, or make a pledge to screen with your health professionals.”

Rosova stresses herbal medicines and traditional doctors are not the way to go.

“The lump had a massive size across my breast, was growing rapidly, and had turned into a boil. Still, I opted for herbal medicine and massages from traditional doctors until I could not take the pain anymore and was sicker anyway. “

Fiji Cancer Society Clinical Nurse Karolina Tamani says that Movember awareness will be in vain unless we all take steps to turn the awareness into action as everyone knows the many causes of cancer and the solutions.
