No health, no life
The shock is inevitable. Nobody is prepared to hear a doctor tell you that you have a breast cancer. Manuela, mother of the three-year-old daughter Inês, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32. After the initial shock, Manuela prepared herself for what she she thought would be a long process but with a happy ending. Six months after the diagnosis, Manuela was still waiting to be called to start treatment.
The slowness, the lack of resources and the precariousness of the hospitals made them forget that the most aggressive subtypes of cancer are mostly found in younger women, and they are not even included in the screening programmes. The diagnosis took eight months. Manuela died.
Do you think this only happens to others?
