Sponsors get together to provide free cancer screenings at Freedom Park clinic
As part of breast cancer awareness month the Pink Drive teamed up with Old Mutual and Talk Radio 702 to bring free mammogram screenings and breast examinations to the Freedom Park clinic in Soweto on Wednesday.
Eyewitness News reporter Aurelie Kalenga was there.
She says women and men came out in their numbers.
For many, they got good news, a clean bill of health but for many others they discovered some lumps and bumps or bruises and referred to doctors, but there was a lot of encouragement because essentially early detection is best.Aurelie Kalenga, Anchor - EWN
Other services were also provided including pap smears, sugar and glucose testing, as well as educational workshops on lupus.
It was a very well represented event with a lot of health issues really thrust in the spotlight.Aurelie Kalenga, Anchor - EWN
