Breast cancer is common in Malta. One in three women are affected. It is the most common form of cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in women above the age of 30 in Malta. However it can be defeated. Well-known personality and mother-of-two Nirvana Ciavola Azzopardi is determined to get better but she needs all the help she can get.
Nirvana Ciavola Azzopardi made headlines for the wrong reasons in the local media as she filed in a judicial protest last December after she claimed of being misdiagnosed by her consultant.
Diagnosed with the most aggressive form of breast cancer, Nirvana now 39 years old, needs to go abroad for further treatment.
On Sunday 13th January, a walk will take place to help her raise funds. The walk will start at 9.30am near the LOVE sign in St Julians to Qui-si-Sana.
For more information on this Sunday charity event kindly check the event on Facebook here.
For those who cannot make it during the weekend, another walk will take place for Nirvana on Wednesday 9th January. The walk will start near the chapel of Tas-Silg in Marsaxlokk at 9.45 am. For further info please contact Francesca Bianchi on 99420988.
The public is invited to join in both walks for Nirvana and if possible donate a minimum of 5 euro.
