Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD) in collaboration with Pantai Jerudong Specialist Centre (PJSC) and Brunei Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG) increased awareness on breast cancer through a sharing session recently.
Preventive measures, importance of self-examination and early-detection screening for cancer were shared by survivors and carers of those diagnosed with the disease during a session conducted by PJSC’s Oncology Specialist Dr Raden Mas Jeffri bin Raden Mas Ismail, BBCSG President Hajah Aminah binti Haji Momin @ Ratu Hajah Aminah binti Pangeran Hawa Haji Momin and BBCSG Secretary Datin Hajah Jaliha binti Haji Momin @ Ratu Datin Hajah Jaliha binti Pangeran Hawa Haji Momin.
It was hoped that AMBD employees would benefit from the session by fostering a better sense of responsibility towards their health, and support those who are, or have suffered, from breast cancer.
The event concluded with a donation handover collected through AMBD’s Pinktober 2020 Donation Drive, presented by AMBD Managing Director Hajah Rokiah binti Haji Badar to Hajah Aminah. The donation drive was conducted internally among AMBD employees to contribute mastectomy bras and breast prosthetics for survivors and patients.
