One of the most common forms of cancer among women in South Africa is breast cancer. In order to raise awareness of the importance of early detection in contributing to effective treatment and a positive prognosis, October has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month by the National Department of Health as part of a nationwide drive by public and private healthcare structures.

The incidence of breast cancer among South African women is increasing, with it being the most prevalent cancer among white and Asian women, and the second most common cancer among black and coloured women. About 90% of patients survive for many years after diagnosis when breast cancer is detected in its early stages. Regular self-breast examination and mammograms are key to such early detection. Early treatment is not only likely to be more effective, but could lead to a significant reduction in pain and suffering and reduced loss of life.

In support of this national initiative, Shumani Industrial Equipment, the biggest black-owned industrial equipment supplier in South Africa, hosted a mini golf day at the Eye of Africa Golf & Residential Estate in Eikenhof on Thursday 14 October. The event, hosted in conjunction with Liquor Runners and attracting a field of 16 players, raised R50 000 in aid of the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

“This is an important cause for us to support, and we would like to extend our gratitude to Liquor Runners for assisting us in this regard and also to all of the players who joined us at the event. The funds collected will go a long way in assisting CANSA to promote breast cancer awareness during October,” comments Shumani MD Victor Nemukula.
