2:12 pm on 5 October 2007

Tonga's Breast Cancer Society has been officially launched in the presence of Princess Salote Mafile'o Pilolevu Tuita.

The Matangitonga news site reports the princess as saying that the organisation will help inform women who are suffering but staying at home without seeking treatment.

To mark the International Breast Cancer Day on October the 20th, the Breast Cancer Society hopes to attract about 1,800 people to join a walk for health in Nuku'alofa.
