The Wife of Ondo State Governor, Arabinrin Betty Anyanwu -Akeredolu has emphasised the need for adequate breast cancer awareness within Ondo State and beyond. She made this known during the signing of Memorandum of Understanding between Ondo State government and Harvard University which held on Friday in Akure.

Describing the MoU which seeks to establish a cancer treatment centre in Ondo State as a welcome development, the First Lady lauded the support of the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu led administration in the fight against breast cancer within the State.

“I am very delighted by the support of Arakunrin in our fight against breast cancer. I appreciate the State government for buying into this vision.”

While noting the economic prospects of the cancer treatment centre to Ondo State, Mrs Akeredolu observed that religious leaders should be involved in the move against breast cancer stressing that this would help to debunk some superstitious beliefs which inhibit breast cancer victims from accessing prompt medical help.

“We need to engage religious leaders in the fight against breast cancer. The people must be taught that breast cancer is not witchcraft. It can be treated if prompt medical assistance is accessed.
