To mark the world cancer day for the year, 2018 which was scheduled for 4th February, we had free Breast Cancer screening exercises at two different locations and on two separate dates respectively.
The first event was held at C-villa guest house, off Abraham Adesanya, Lekki Phase II, Lagos. It was with the female sports persons who reside around the facility and uses it for their fitness training. An initial talk was given to the ladies by our Director (Dr. Mrs. Dumebi) in the filed during a break-time which they observed. After their workout time we had an in-house training in the guest with these ladies. It was eye opening for the ladies present. After the very simple but revealing medical facts about Breast Cancers, questions were asked and appropriate answers were given to the satisfaction of all who asked.
