Discussions with Cancer patients revealed that, they did not come forward for help as they simply cannot afford the cost of treatment.

This is a mentality that needs to change and the support for chemotherapy will certainly aid in that regard, she noted.

Mrs. Royer added, the Association will continue to advocate for free Cancer treatment.
