International Women’s Day: Gruelling Journeys to Hospital, and Other Challenges For Breast Cancer Survivors In Sabah

In conjunction with International Women’s Day on 8 March, Health & Living is exploring the barriers that women in underserved communities in Sarawak and Sabah face in the context of cancer care. We speak to Stage 3 breast cancer survivor Jacqueline John, Vice President of the Kinabalu Pink Ribbon (also known as the Kinabalu Breast Cancer Support Association), who overcame tremendous personal barriers to undergo surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Jacqueline also shares more about the pervasive challenges of increasing breast cancer awareness, access to care, and survivorship support for women in Sabah.
