There may come a time when you, or someone close to you, will be told that the only option now is to go to the Philippines or Australia or Singapore.
When faced with reality, only those who can afford are flying abroad for cancer diagnosis and treatments while even more remain in the country and lose the battle.
Project manager of PNG’s Walk the Talk against Cancer, Barbara Toiya, says the real need now is to bring in the cancer facilities.
This should be ultimate goal in PNG’s fight against cancer.
Walk the Talk against Cancer is hosting a corporate dinner in March 24, 2017.
The dinner, to be held at the Dynasty Restaurant in Port Moresby, is selling a table for K20,000.
Toiya says the aim is to raise over K12 million.
“Money collected will go towards cancer machine and facilities, which are very expensive,” she said.
Communities are also encouraged to play a part in donating towards this cause.
Women in provinces are forming groups to join the fight.
In Chimbu Province, Catholic Women Association has led the Simbu team for a two-day wheelbarrow push around town. They collected a total of K3000!
The fight continues! Be a part of it!
