Where to Get: Free/Low-Cost Breast Cancer Screening in Zimbabwe

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This post by the Quarter Wife has very valuable information on the various places you can get screened. Please take the time to read through, find the nearest place to you and get tested! Early detection can save your life!

The Quarter Wife

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in Zimbabwe affecting women (according to 2012 statistics, the third most common, after Cervical cancer and Kaposi’s Sarcoma), and the third most common cause of death among those cancers. It’s such a devastating disease because women tend to present when it’s too late. The heartbreak when one has to look a patient in the eyes and say, “There’s nothing we can do.” The trauma of sitting and pretty much having to wait to die.

For this reason, October has been chosen as Breast Cancer Awareness month worldwide, to encourage women to get screened for breast cancer. Zimbabwean organisations have also joined in to give women greater access to screening and education so they can be treated in time, if need be.

So, here is a list of places you can get screened for breast cancer. The list is not exhaustive; as…

#30DayAfriblogger Challenge. Day 19: Being Yvonne-Michelle…

Life with Dimples

I used to really hate Being Mary-Jane when it first came out. The fact that she was purposefully having an affair with a married man, the fact that she was the stereotypical successful black woman who had everything…everything but love. I think initially I watched the first two or three episodes and then decided I wouldn’t watch it again. And I didn’t for a while. Then for some reason I began to watch it again. It was at this point that I realised I had hated this show because it had a lot of similarities with my life (except the bed wetting business lol).  It highlighted the bits of my life that I didn’t like and that I usually try to ignore.

The range of emotions she goes through, the problems she faces, her frustrations…all too familiar. I’m glad I started watching it again though. It forced me to face and…

#30DayAfriblogger Challenge. Day 18: The downside of fake nails

Life with Dimples

You know how it is sometimes when you swear you will never do something again and then a while later you have forgotten why it was such a bad idea then you do it again? Immediately after all the reasons why it was such a bad idea come flooding back! This is my current situation with regards these darn fake nails I got done last week. They look nice I must admit but goodness, I don’t know how long I can deal with the following:

  1. Fake nails and stockings are not the best of friends. This is a recipe for disaster. The number of brand new stockings I’ve laddered! Ugh!
  2. Messaging on your phone is damn near impossible! Soooo frustrating!
  3. Goodbye to any satisfying scratching. These things are blunt compared to my real nails. I’m having to use my hair brushes and all manner of sharp objects to scratch myself!

#30DayAfriblogger Challenge. Day 17: F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Life with Dimples

“You’ll understand these things when you’re older!” or in Shona “Kura uwone”. I’m sure every single one of us heard that statement like a million times from our parents and we all rolled our eyes and said a silent “whatever man”. Now that I am older, it all really DOES make sense lol. The one issue that has been making sense to me lately is that of friends. I remember when I was in my first year of uni I became friends with this girl. I would talk to my mom about her and without even meeting her my mom did not like her. She told me she was bad news and I should stop hanging out with her. Of course I did not listen and being far away from home, I continued with the friendship. Needless to say, my mom was oh so right. She did turn out to…

#30DayAfriblogger Challenge: Day 16: Why I love love Amal Alamuddin!

Life with Dimples

Amal Alamuddin! This is a woman after my own heart! I love her! For those who do not know who she is, she is the woman who has managed to capture George Clooney’s heart (sorry, that sounded a bit Mills & Boon-ish, ewww). The reason why I have so much respect for Amal is not only that she has bagged the man who was once the most eligible bachelor on earth, but because she is exactly the kind of woman I aspire to be. Certainly, I love the fact that she is married to a man who a lot of women would give their right arm for, but more than that I am inspired by the fact that she is Amal Alamuddin, before she is Amal Clooney. Too many times, we begin to know who a woman is after she has married a successful man. More often than not, she…
