Did you see this important article about cancer screening in the Nepali Times?
(If you missed it, here's your chance to find out what it said!)

June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

To read about it, and see a slide show, click here:

This is something you don't want to ignore the symptoms of.
Please come in for a consultation immediately if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Yes, it could be embarrassing, but it's also life saving, as early detection is KEY!

Have you checked out the website of the Nepal Cancer Relief Society?
It's full of information.

If you haven't seen this Nepal Health Survey from the United Nations,
it's worth at least checking out!

Did you see this Gorkha Patra Online article about tomatoes?  It's interesting!

This slide show lists cancer fighting foods.
Surely everyone can find something they like here!
