Ondo First Lady seeks support for breast cancer patients

Wife of Ondo state Governor, Mrs. Betty Akeredolu, has sought more support for breast cancer patients across the country.

Mrs. Akeredolu, who made the call in Lokoja when she visited the wife of the Kogi Governor, Mrs. Rashidat Bello, thanked her counterpart for assisting the state’s Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria (BRECAN).

She expressed gratitude for the warm reception given to her by Mrs. Bello and for making the good health of Kogi women a priority in her scheme of things.

“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.

Wife of the Deputy Governor of Kogi state, Mrs. Eunice Achuba, 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.
