Awka—HUNDREDS of women from Idemili North and South local government areas of Anambra State yesterday participated in breast cancer screening exercise organized by the Most Beautiful Girl in Idemili, Miss Onyinye Chikeluba as part of her pet project to fight the scourge.
Chikeluba said she was moved to embark on the project because of the increasing number of cases among women, coupled with the fact that cancer was a major killer in the world.
The beauty queen said: “Many women need regular screening for breast cancer, but because most women lack the resources to go for regular screening , they allow the lump on their breast to grow to a dangerous level.
“After winning the pageant, I thought of a project to embark upon during my reign and I came up with the idea of conducting cancer screening for the women in the two local government areas. That was why I came up with the cancer awareness campaign and I am happy that our women turned up in large numbers”.
