ISLAMABAD: First Lady Samina Alvi on Sunday pushed women for self-examination to detect and treat breast cancer without complications. She was addressing the prize distribution ceremony of a cricket match held here between women parliamentarians and women journalists for creating awareness of breast cancer. The 10-over match was won by the parliamentarians’ team, whose members and organisers received trophies and shields from the first lady, the chief guest on the occasion. She lauded the media for creating awareness of self-examination for breast cancer detection and treatment disease besides helping eliminate the related taboos.
