A Blue Month for men

A Blue Month for men

The Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN) launched its first ever, Men’s Breakfast on 21 April, which will be held at the Swakopmund Hotel & Entertainment Centre on 4 June to kick start their “Blue Month” in support of men fighting cancer in Namibia. Rolf Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of CAN said because male cancer, especially prostate cancer is becoming more prevalent, they have decided to dedicate the month of June to male cancer. “In 2015 we recorded 3154 cases of male cancer compared to 2343 in 2014, therefore I invite all Namibian men to take care of their health and attend this event, which will be informative as well as entertaining,” he stated. For the remainder of June, CAN will be promoting men’s health and the fight against cancer by Namibian men. The Blue Month campaign will end on 24 June with a Blue Day celebration. Tickets for the Men’s Breakfast are available online at at N$450.
