Regina Pacis College
Cancer awareness is not part of the curriculum in schools. The causes, symptoms and prevention for most of the cancers common in Africa are not known to these students. While we were at Ragina Pacis College, in Mutengene, Cameroon, Dr Trixy Franke gave an extensive talk on breast, cervix, lung and liver cancer awareness that ran late into the afternoon. The students were extremely excited and their participation was at maximum. To further incentivize the students, T-shirts were awarded to those who did well in our little quiz session. We ended up running out of T-shirts since the students were bent on claiming all awards. As they retired to continue with their activities, some congregated around Dr Trixy with further questions especially those surrounding cancer myths.
