The Nationalist Party issued a statement highlighting how cancer patients and their families a better quality life. In a news press conference, the Opposition Party spoke about how, despite charity being a noble act, cancer treatment has become too dependent upon the goodwill of people, groups and initiatives. This has led to loss of hope among cancer patients, says the party, and worse, inefficient resources to receive the required treatment. Health spokesperson Stephen Spiteri, spokesperson for social politics and the family Claudette Buttigieg and electoral candidate Ian Vassallo brought forward a number of proposals to be undertaken by a Nationalist government in terms of cancer treatment.

The first objective listed is to give the best biological cure to the cancer patient, followed by other such measures – the allocation of necessary financial aid to give free treatment through first-line medicine; the constant updating of latest medicine with the patient not having to depend upon other entities; the foundation of a drug fund so as to avoid patients having to endure bureaucracy and; the widening of access to supportive medicines to reduce the effects of medication. The second objective entails prevention before it is all too late, followed by holistic aid to reduce the patient and family suffering.

Sarah paves the way for body-positivity in the local model industry

Freelance model and blogger Sarah managed to land, and absolutely slay, an opportunity to model at Miss Universe Malta for the Piccinino Fashion Show last Friday. Speaking to this newsroom, Sarah revealed how she had been working immensely hard for the past couple of years to try and break into the modelling industry. However, as a size 14 model and not meeting the height requirement, this proved immensely difficult for Sarah. She nonetheless did not give up on her goal, seeking to help aspiring models just like her. Having suffered from mental health issues throughout her teenage years, mostly because of how she looked, she found a way to love herself and her body.

Fast forward to last Friday and Sarah managed to break through the fashion barriers. She realized how the struggles she endured were mainly due to the lack of representation in the fashion and modelling industry. But now, as she paves the way for future models, she has managed to make connections in the scene and received an amazing reaction as she dominated the catwalk. Sarah, who is also a proud owner at the ‘hobblilekinnifsek’ store, will be making huge waves in the industry ahead!
