I’m a 30 year old lady, that was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at an early age of 8 years. I’m from Namibia, Africa. I lost my womb and both ovaries. Ever since then I travel 980 KM to the city (Windhoek) for my yearly follow up. That’s where the nearest Oncology center is, so majority of people do not make it. Some of them only find out that they have cancer at a late stage. Most of them are from villages and do not have means of transport to travel to town where they can be assisted. Cancer is a deadliest disease, most family member start funeral arrangement as soon as someone is diagnosed with cancer. The stigma against cancer need to end. People need to be educated on the symptoms and how to prevent cancer.

So, I’m humbly requesting for funds to start up an awareness project and invite specialist to our town here and there for all type of cancer screening.

We need to save lives and it begins with us!
