Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

In light of the closing of breast cancer awareness month, MWL ASC Tropoja and the Psycho-Social Sector at Qendra Spitalore Universitare “Nene Tereza” (QSUT) Tirana organized a training.

The session on “Communication of Diagnosis to Patients Affected by Cancer” was held by the staff of Tropoja Hospital Service, in cooperation with the Directorate of this institution. This meeting was also attended by the Local Health Care Unit.

Participants shared experiences and a cancer treatment success story was shared by the QSUT Oncology Psychologist himself.

These kinds of stories are inspiring for women to fight for their lives!
