Press Statement: Swaziland Breast and Cervical Cancer Network (SBCCN)
Being diagnosed with breast cancer is traumatic at any age but for one young Swazi woman diagnosed recently with an advanced and aggressive form of the disease at the age of 21 years has been a frightening reality.
Fikile* still has a chance to fight this awful disease and even win but without vital chemotherapy treatment she faces an uncertain future.
SBCCN is working to assist this beautiful, positive young woman as she faces the fight of her life but we need your help to raise the R70-80,000 needed for her full treatment.
It is a daunting amount but we believe that little drops of water create a mighty ocean so if you can help in any way, big or small please message or call us on +268 24049273 or you can make a donation to Nedbank Call Account Number: 020000345718 with the reference ‘Fikile Treatment’.
*name changed to protect patient’s privacy
