MdFF creates colon cancer awareness

The MdFF (Manny de Freitas Foundation) held its monthly cancer awareness breakfast in March. Colon cancer was the focus of the cancer awareness breakfast. The Bem Bom coffee shop in Bedfordview was packed to capacity on Saturday, 28 March 2015.

Executive Director of the MdFF, Jeanette de Freitas said that it was decided to focus on colon cancer as it is one of the lesser known cancers. Colon cancer develops in the colon or rectum when the abnormal growth of cells occur.

Founder of the Manny de Freitas Foundation, Manny de Freitas was present. In his address he explained the aim of the foundation; to raise funds so that research into alternative treatments and cures for cancer can be properly researched.

Also present was head of the newly formed Men’s group of the MdFF, Richard Warren-Tangney. The first men’s group function will take place in May.

Jeanette de Freitas said that the MdFF would continue with their awareness events as people have an opportunity to give back to a worthy cause, getting to know more about cancer whilst also having fun.
