Iraqi First Lady Shanaz Ibrahim Ahmed said in a post on her X account that she participated in a 5-kilometer marathon race in Azadi Park in Sulaymaniyah to support World Cancer Day.

"Every year, millions of people worldwide lose their lives to cancer. We must raise awareness and improve early detection rates," she said.

The First Lady underlined that the only way to achieve a clean environment and a cancer-free future is to maintain scientific efforts and social activities that raise awareness and promote early screening, especially among women, in order to lessen the dangers of this deadly disease, develop preventive measures, and raise awareness of it worldwide.
