PRINCESS KATHERINE PLEA TO THE WOMEN OF SERBIA
REGARDING CANCER PREVENTION
Dear Women of Serbia,
These two weeks are dedicated to the prevention of
cervical cancer, but the women of Serbia should think of cancer prevention
of everyday of the year.
Women in our country are like ambassadors and heroes.
They take care of their families and relationships and struggle to build a
good future. Their continued fight for the place women deserve in society is
an example of the independence that we women have been aspiring for
centuries. During these endeavours, simultaneously holding the duty of being
a spouse, mother and friend, women sadly stop thinking about themselves.
Iím appealing to all the women of Serbia to take control
of their personal well being. In taking care of your health you are also
taking care of your loved ones, because your good health is a prerequisite
for a healthier life and the well being of your families. This is the
foundation on which every society should be built on. I would draw your
attention to the vital importance of medical screenings, prevention and
vaccination programmes that will help eliminate preventable disease.
Please be assured of my genuine gratitude and admiration
for your wonderful work. I hope that together we will work on bringing
awareness for overall cancer prevention and screening that is vital for
I wish you all the very best for the future.
