Founder’s message

Sample image

I am not a doctor, I am not a psychiatrist – I am just a woman who went through an experience, and thought to help others who might find themselves in a similar situation. That idea of offering support and comfort turned into afternoons in my living room with like minded people, both men and women, who felt that something needed to be done about the lack of information available about cancer in Oman, especially with the growing numbers of Omanis affected by the disease. So we moved out of the living room and formed what is today the Oman Cancer Association (OCA). Our function is simple. Our message is clear: Regular Examination and Early Detection Saves Lives!.

OCA has obtained the influence and with it the obligation to touch the lives of the public at large, especially women; by delivering health education we hope to empower people to beat this often deadly yet treatable disease. It is because of dedicated supporters, individuals and groups that organize great, entertaining events to get that message out, that we are able to accomplish our goals. Two accomplishments that I am particularly thrilled about and grateful to have been a part of bringing about are the Mobile Mammography Unit and Dar Al Hanan. You can read more about these fantastic initiatives in our monthly newsletter while browsing our website.

 

As with forming the Association, implementing our various projects has been a “learn as we go” process. But there is no end to what can be achieved by a band of dedicated volunteers and supporters who actively contribute to the positive change they want to see in their society. To quote Gandhi – “You may never know what results come of your actions. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”

 

I want to take this opportunity to give special thanks to all of you who have supported us in the past and continue to do so every year. We could not have successfully completed the various projects that were undertaken over the years without your support of efforts. I look forward to working with you all and to many successful years and growth within our Association. On behalf of the Executive Board, I would like to sincerely thank all our sponsors, members and volunteers – I thank you.
