BSP supporting breast cancer awareness

DEAR EDITOR, “The Bank of South (BSP) in Solomon Islands has called on businesses operating in the country to wear something pink in aid of Pinktober.

“The call was made in a press interview with the BSP Country Manager David Anderson last week in Honiara.

“Manger Anderson said Pink Ribbon Charity works on escalating breast cancer alertness across the Solomon Islands as it has become one foremost medical concern which women and girls of this nation and the hospital workers are currently facing today.” Quoting an extract from the Island Sun newspaper – October 15, 2018

I extend my appreciation to BSP and the Country Manager, David Anderson, for supporting a breast cancer awareness campaign in the Solomon Islands.

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women

The good news is that mammograms can help find breast cancer early.

Mammograms (X-Ray pictures) are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms.

They can also be used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain, skin dimpling or nipple discharge.

Most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
