Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) Cui Yu visited patients from northwest China's Gansu Province who attended a workshop on improving professional skills and knowledge about cervical and breast cancers in Beijing on October 29.

At the workshop, high-profile medical staff gave medical examinations and psychological counseling to the patients. Some experts delivered lectures to them on entrepreneurship.

During the visit, Cui watched a newsreel titled "Inspiring Cancer Patients with Love" with the patients. After hearing a report made by Gansu Women's Federation’s Han Keyin, Cui talked with the patients and afterwards delivered a speech.

In her speech, Cui talked about how the Organization Department of Gansu Provincial Party Committee and Gansu Women's Federation have held workshops for cancer patients consecutively over the past four years. The federation allocated 500,000 yuan (U.S. $81,809) every year for the workshop and provided training to 250 women, added Cui.

Cui noted that the workshops reflect the government's concern for cancer patients. Cui encouraged them to cooperate with medical staff and fully recover. Cui hoped that they would use the knowledge that they learned at the workshop to develop their businesses and improve their lives.
