Dubrovnik Against Cervical Cancer

As part of the national charity drive ‘Mimoza Day’, dedicated to the fight against cervical cancer. Saturday saw members of the  Croatian League Against Cancer and Dubrovnik League Against Cancer take to the Stradun to sell Mimoza to raise funds and awareness.

Locals and visitors who purchased some Mimoza showed their solidarity to the cause. Money raised on Saturday will go towards  improving oncology care in the Dubrovnik area and welfare provided for those who need help. One woman a day is diagnosed with cervical cancer and every three days one dies from the disease. Early detection and health education are the best ways to prevent the cancer as well as regular smear tests.
