Health Minister Faeqa Al Saleh shut down lawmakers questioning her on the alleged plight of cancer patients, who had to endure long waiting times at Salmaniya Medical Complex when she stressed that she knows the suffering of cancer patients.“I have suffered from cancer and I have recovered from it, thank God,” the minister said, adding that “cancer is not a death sentence and it is possible to recover from it”.


This came after MP Mamdooh Al Saleh accused the Health Ministry of not doing enough to help Bahraini cancer patients, especially when it comes to reducing waiting time. He said that the patients had to wait for long hours while suffering pain. Sharing her cancer story, the minister said that her ministry is doing everything possible to reduce the suffering of cancer patients.
