“Breast cancer is no longer a terminal disease because there can be survivors with early detection and access to adequate health care facilities,’’ she said.

Mrs Eunice Achuba, wife of the Deputy Governor of Kogi, who represented Mrs Bello, appreciated BRECAN for bringing the crusade against cancer to the state.

She urged the people of Kogi to join hands with BRECAN to make the state cancer-free.
