October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer. On this occasion we turned to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) to learn more about their mission and vision. We spoke with Abeda Steenkamp about stigma and taboos surrounding cancer that she sees in South Africa. Furthermore, she shares her own experiences as a breast cancer patient, discusses the important role of education and support, and gives an insight into her work and tasks as a Service Coordinator for CANSA.
