Cancer Treatments at Faith Alvie
Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight the oncology work being done by Dr Mercy. In the past year, Dr Mercy has performed 17 cancer surgeries on women at the Faith Alive Hospital. You can see her at work in the picture. In Nigeria oncologists are scarce, and breast and cervical cancer go unscreened and undetected. The Hospital has new tools for screenings, and screened over 1100 women for cervical cancer last year.
