Cabinet Minister Winnie Laban has revealed she has breast cancer, and is having chemotherapy treatment.
While one would have sympathy any MP who has cancer (even the other Winnie!), it is worth noting that Laban is one of those MPs who is held in genuine affection by MPs from all parties. She is a very pleasant and dedicated person.
Laban hopes publicity over her case will encourage other women to have regular checks. It was the sort of cancer than can’t be detected by self examination, but was picked up by a mammogram.
It’s just like voting – check early and check often!No tag for this post.
