What the foundation is achieving
The foundation continues to work on acquiring various machines to aide in early detection of various kinds of cancer, such as mammography, MRI and ultrasound machines.
At the October 2008 workshop in Buea, Cameroon, the foundation paid for 18 women to have mammograms.
So far since, the foundation continues to supply breast forms (prosthesis) to women yearly on a need basis.
The foundation has taught many women and men the BSE and TSE techniques and provided them with doctor information for follow up. The foundation has supplied mobility equipment on a limited basis as part of our palliative care initiative. Good nutritional values and overall wellness initiatives are being stressed and recipes provided.
