Efforts aimed at reducing breast cancer among the womenfolk have received a boost as Dr Mrs Olufunso Amosun and Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta teamed up to check the spread of the disease.

The event was the Breast Cancer Screening and Lumpectomy sponsored by the Uplift Development Foundation established by Mrs Amosun in partnership with FMC, Abeokuta.

In her speech at the event, Mrs Amosun called for concerted efforts to fight cancer because ” it has become a deadly disease spreading fast and robbing us of our loved ones.

” We cannot afford to be complacent because hundreds of thousands of people die from various types of cancer in the world yearly and this gives great cause for concern “

She disclosed that her husband, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has made funds available for lumpectomy of Ogun State patients diagnosed during the screening exercise.

Earlier in his welcome address, the Medical Director FMC Abeokuta Prof. Adewale Musa- Olomu described breast cancer as one of the highest killers of women in the world.

He therefore counseled women to present early at certified medical institutions if they noticed any abnormalities in their breasts.

The Medical Director said cancer is preventable and curable only if it is detected early through screening and prompt medical intervention.

The well attended event featured lectures and self breast examination.
