Sucking titties does not cure cancer, it detects it - Lillian Dube

Veteran actress and cancer survivor Lillian Dube says if she knew what she knows now about cancer she would have asked the doctors to do more tests when she had a discharge in her breast.

Dube underwent surgery for breast cancer in 2008.

Featuring on the Azania Mosaka show, Dube says when she was told she had cancer she was told she was going to die.

Cancers are not the same. And also it depends on when was it detected. That is why I made it my mission to create awareness. When I say suck those titties I mean it.

If it doesn't kill you it makes you strong. It changes your perspective. I used to love life and now I love it more because I'm a survivor.
