“ I felt pain in my breasts and I was worried that it is cancer. I was scared to see a doctor. But then I saw my kids and I thought what would happen to them if I do not see a doctor? What if my pain is worse? Who will take care of my kids if I fell sick?
… So I went to the free Avon clinic and asked to see a doctor. The doctor was very nice and did some tests and told me I had a breast infection. He gave me medicines and soon the pain went away. Now I do not worry and I feel healthy. My kids are happy.”
