The Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Rosy Akbar yesterday called on women in Fiji to get tested early for breast cancer.

Ms Akbar was invited by women of the Latter-day Saints (LDS) Suva Division during their Cancer Awareness campaign at the LDS Primary School, Tamavua, Suva, yesterday.

“Having breast cancer as one of the leading killers of women in Fiji is quite serious and we have to stand up to stop cancer,” Ms Akbar said.

“We have to help educate others by letting them know that they have to get tested for early detection and we should let our family, our community know that it’s serious.”

The theme of the event was ‘Charity Never Fail – Cancer Awareness in Our Community.’

It consisted of women from Navua, Lami, Wailoku, Samabula, Tamavua and Tacirua.

They conducted a church service and also held an art and craft display.
