TNM in cancer awareness drive

Post was last updated: February 24, 2017

TNM has launched an initiative aimed at engaging its staff on cancer awareness.

Health stakeholders across the globe set aside the month of February to commemorate World Cancer and Childhood Cancer Days.

TNM Senior Manager, Public Relations, Akossa Mphepo, said the activities lined up aim to create awareness about cancer amongst employees and the company’s customers to encourage routine screening for early diagnosis and early treatment options.

“Our employees are putting on lavender ribbons that bring awareness to all cancers. We are doing this in solidarity with those with cancer, survivors and their families. These ribbons have been purchased from Cancer Survivor’s Quest and the proceeds from the purchase will be used to provide free cervical cancer screening to women in five communities in the country,” she said.

Mphepo said apart from the ribbons, the company already conducted cancer awareness sessions as well as cervical cancer screening for the staff.

In his remarks Cancer Survivor’s Quest Director, Chikhulupiliro Ng’ombe, expressed the need to create more awareness on cancer issues.
