She said, “Cancer progresses with time and in stages, it starts with a painless lump. If you don’t take it to doctors early is a ticking time bomb.

“There is need for funds to fight cancer. States must get money for cancer control.
It behooves on women especially, the Non-Governmental Organisations to lobby the states assemblies.

“State governments should begin to plan for cancer control, in doing this they are taking care of the health of the people.”
