the National Association of Cancer Awareness in Oman

There has been a recent announcement here in the Sultanate of Oman about the newly established National Association of Cancer Awareness.

This association deals with representing the community's cancer patients, their needs, and their health welfare. The Association deals also in helping those pateints get more healthcare, cheaper medicine and developed drugs that would help prevent their scares coming to surface.

Although the announcement had been made in the local media, there hasn't quite yet been a follow up advertising campaign or press release as to how to join up the association in terms of volunteering or working for it for the main purpose of raising awareness to the Cancer apademic.

This writer, however, had gone on to question the local hospitals for any information related to the association and found out the only clue to it's whereabouts was in the Ghala area in the Muscat capital area.

The cancer patients have made their call crystal clear - will you answer them?
