BEARD FES­TI­VAL AT THE AR­BORE­TUM

The Star (Kenya) - - Society -

With the main pur­pose be­ing to cre­ate aware­ness of cancer in Kenya with the world­wide con­cept of #NoShaveNovem­ber, the Beard Fes­ti­val was held on Satur­day at the Ar­bore­tum grounds in Nairobi.

“We of­ten have cancer aware­ness cam­paigns but are lim­ited types of cancer that mostly af­fect women, such as breast and cer­vi­cal cancer. Prostate cancer is given less aware­ness. We chose Novem­ber as it is the cancer aware­ness month for pan­cre­atic, lung, stom­ach and car­ci­noid cancer.” the event or­gan­is­ers said.
