KATHMANDU, Sept 8: Actress Manisha Koirala, who survived ovarian cancer, took a pledge to aware women about ovarian cancer, its signs, and symptoms.
On the occasion of Ovarian Cancer Month, Koirala along with the National Cancer Hospital organized a walkathon, "Hope of Walk" to champion against cancers that women are diagnosed with. Other participants included doctors, scouts, and college students.
The Walkathon started from National Cancer Hospital at 8 AM and concluded at Mangalbazaar. Koirala said," Positive and negative thinking makes a difference during the cancer period." Support from my mother and positive thinking helped me a lot. These can be the reasons for the cure. Exercise will also help, other than the gym. Keeping a fresh mind is good, and home activities such as dance will also help at this time.
Ovarian cancer is one of the three cancers that women, especially those at or above 40 years are diagnosed with. The other two cancers are breast and cervical.
