ALMOST 1000 free cancer tests were conducted in Kouga and Kou-kamma during October when PinkDrive visited the Eastern Cape for the first time.

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said a total of 479 clinical breast exams, 111 mammograms, 188 pap smears, 32 ultra sounds and 153 prostrate-specific antigen (PSA) tests were done during the NGO’s five-day outreach to the region.

“The theme of the programme, which coincided with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, was ‘Early detection saves lives’. It was heartening to see so many women and men make use of the opportunity,” she said.

The Mayor thanked Cennergi, the Kouga Wind Farm and Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm for making the outreach possible.
