Female Journalists Screen for Cervical Cancer in Honour of Susan Musukuma

Friday, November 29, 2012 – The Zambia Media Women Association is deeply saddened by the death of senior journalist and our member, Susan Musukuma.
Susan fought a year-long battle against cervical cancer, which she unfortunately lost on Thursday, November 28, 2012.
When Susan was diagnosed with the deadly disease, she used social media in urging women to screen for cervical cancer.
ZAMWA would like to continue her campaign and we are humbly requesting all women in the media and in general to screen for cervical cancer in honour of Susan and to adequately inform the nation about the disease.
Cervical cancer is the easiest female cancer to prevent with screening tests and follow-ups. Two screening tests can prevent cervical cancer or find it early enough to be sucessfully treated.
Ms Susan Musukuma will be dearly missed at ZAMWA and her work in the media will forever be cherished.
She leaves behind a son.
