CHAM­PI­ONING PINK OC­TO­BER

Qatar Today - - CULTURE > DOHA DIARY -

As part of Ford's Mod­els of Courage pro­gramme which was ini­ti­ated in the Mid­dle East in 2011, five breast can­cer sur­vivors came to­gether to openly dis­cuss their sto­ries. By con­tin­u­ing to high­light sto­ries of lo­cal breast can­cer sur­vivors, es­pe­cially in Qatar, the taboo around the dis­ease can be coun­tered and more women can be en­cour­aged to talk about it and go for reg­u­lar check­ups, the company said in a state­ment. Deirdre Mcguire, Ni­cola Simp­son, Ge­orgina Tay­lor and Karen Mor­ris took part in an event in Doha where they shared their per­sonal sto­ries and en­cour­ag­ing mes­sages for those bat­tling the dis­ease.
