“Honoring Women Month” is past the midway point.
The Cayman Islands Cancer Society marked it last evening (Tuesday 15 March) by teaming up with the Department of Sports to educate women on the variety of cancers they should be aware of.
We hear a lot about breast cancer, but women also face endometrial, ovarian and cervical cancers.
The night’s attendees got information on self examinations and the importance of seeing your doctor for other screenings.
“If a woman should get her pap-smear done on a regular basis, whether its once a year or every other year, based on what the doctor says, then abnormal cells can be caught and women can stand a chance of getting their cancer taken care of or the abnormal cells taken care of,” said Victoria Gray of the Cayman Islands Cancer Society.
The Cayman Islands Cancer Society uses information to tackle fear and assistance to overcome financial difficulties.
