The colour pink marks the breast cancer awareness month and during this time women mostly visit the clinic for screening at a special offer fee, a third of the normal screening price for other times besides October.
Speaking to the Information and Research Officer Mr Lovemore Makurirofa in line with the breast cancer awareness month, the health teacher highlighted that this years breast cancer awareness traffic is low as few people are visiting the clinic as compared to previous years ,
” Breast cancer awareness month is being charged $5 only for October, besides October it is pegged at $15.
We haven’t yet done the statistics, but this year people are not coming in their numbers to be screened as compared to previous years maybe because of transport costs,” said Makurirofa
He also mentioned that they are no activities lined up for the awareness month besides offering screening services, since it is a non profit organisation and do not have the budget for extra activities.
The Cancer Association of Zimbabwe (Cancer Centre) is a non -profit making organisation. The Association was formed by a group of cancer survivors and volunteers in a bid to support each other.
