On February 4, World Cancer Day, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine issued an appeal to the women of Serbia:
“Dear women of Serbia, February 4 is World Cancer Day. This Day is devoted to fighting cancer, but you need to think about cancer prevention every day during the year and help your family and friends to do the same.
Our women are putting a heroic effort for the care of their families, and helping build a better future. By trying to do their best as mothers, wives and friends, our women unfortunately often forget to take care of themselves.
I strongly appeal to all the women of Serbia to assume better control of their health. By taking good care of one’s health, at the same time taking care of your loved ones. Your good health is necessary for a better life and the wellbeing of your families. That should be a solid foundation on which we can build a stronger and healthier society. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that regular medical check-ups, screening, prevention and vaccination programmes, are of the outmost importance, and it will help you avoid and cure diseases that are preventable.
Please stay assured that I sincerely admire your extraordinary work, and that I am truly grateful for everything you have been doing. I hope that we will work all together on raising awareness and promoting prevention and screening of cancer, for the ultimate benefit of our women’s health.
I wish you all the best for the future”, said HRH Crown Princess Katherine in her appeal to the women of Serbia.
