Finally speaking, First Lady Meral Eroğlu stressed the need for the government to allocate more funds from the state budget for cancer research.



She also reaffirmed her continuous support to the efforts of the Association which aims at offering financial, moral and social support to people suffering from cancer

They certainly needed to expand their premises due to, unfortunately, the association outgrowing their original premises as the number of people now walking through their doors every week has now increased to and incredible 15 new cancer patients looking for help weekly both from the expat and local community, a frightening figure.



Luckily Raziye managed to get most of the donations for services for free from cancer patients and their families and friends also local businesses.



I wish her well and we will continue to support her in all her efforts as will many of the people she has helped.



Thankyou No 1 for writing about this.

No 1, sorry for the late response and these figures are absolutely true for this year.



1 in 3 women have breast cancer in trnc



2nd highest cancer is prostrate in trnc



I had to help do a presentation for this charity to some children and Raziye Kocaismail who founded this charity gave me some info to help and when this figure came up I was truly shocked.



These are both locals and expats who are seeking guidance/financial assistance.



The big question is what causes it?



Is there something in the air, our food or our drink? No-one seems to know for definite but alot of things can be done to help prevent it developing.



Figures are frighteningly high in UK as well, I think it is getting close to everyone knowing someone who has this disease or is recovering from it.



The important thing is to go for health checks such as the one's Nurseawful has been organising as MOST CANCERS ARE CURABLE IF CAUGHT EARLY!



I am living proof of this after attending one of these.

It's not easy Bill, but I think some of the battle is to keep positive. It's very hard but that is my mechanism for coping with everything that is a happening to me and chemotherapy can effect people in varying degrees, I had no idea how much it would knock out of me (which is very little to how I see some people so I consider myself lucky).



Another very important thing is to have good friends around for support, sometimes it is easier for cancer patients to say 'no thank you' to any help because they have always been independent before the cancer but as I have learnt as my treatment progressed, it is best to say yes.



I am thinking of you and your friends.



Sue
