Actress Lillian Dube Cancer Survivor
The bubbly and outspoken actress is renowned for her role as the matriarch and matron Sister Bettina of the health communications drama Soul City.
Lillian, who also stars in Muvhango, underwent surgery and chemotherapy.
“My cancer was discovered in a routine check up. In fact the first mammogram didn’t pick it up. It was only when I went again a few weeks later that the radiographer noticed it. I was sent for a biopsy which revealed the cancerous cells. Because early detection is key, I appeal to women over the age of 40 to go for annual mammograms.
“My sister in law tried non standard treatment and unfortunately passed away from breast cancer. I have decided to go the medical route for treatment as I don’t want to use untried and untested alternatives.”
