 The display opens on last Monday and will run throughout the national Cancer Week which launches on the same day. Ayah Abdalrahman has been fighting the disease for over 10 years and is currently undergoing treatment at the centre. Her doctor, Özlem Gürkut, said: "We were so inspired by Ayah's paintings that I asked all of our past and present patients whether they would like to contribute some work for the show. "What better way to mark Cancer Week this week than by showing our achievements?" World Cancer Day will be marked on Thursday during the annual North Cyprus Cancer Week, which will include seminars, events and fundraisers.
