ESLF COLLABORATES TO OBSERVE BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

The Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in October 1985 in the United States by two Charity Organizations. As the burden of Breast (and other forms of) Cancer among Women continues to rise globally, the annual event is now observed across the World in the month of October.
The 2017 edition of the event has been (and is still being) commemorated across parts of Benue State. The Nigerian Television Authority/Society for Family Health/Eunice Spring of Life Foundation (NTA/SFH/ESLF) in conjunction with Makurdi Local Government Council, carried out free Cervical Screening Sessions at the Primary Healthcare Centre, Yaikyo, Makurdi on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th October, 2017.
The Team, headed by Dr. Bem Bai (NTA Medical Centre, Abuja), held a Pre-Test Counseling Session with patients on the early symptoms, and importance of screening as early detection is a huge step towards successful treatment of cancer. About 200 women benefitted from this exercise.
The Chairman of Makurdi Local Government Council, Hon. (Mrs.) Juliana Akange-Audu, represented by the Deputy Chairman of the Council, expressed gratitude to the NTA/SFH/ESLF Team and also urged other Organizations to engage in similar partnerships with Her Excellency, Dr. (Mrs.) Eunice E. Ortom, through the ESLF, for the benefit of Benue indigenes.
