Death, for some people, such as the terminally ill is an expected event that is prepared for. For some others, it descends swiftly, and suddenly, like an unwelcome guest. For these unfortunate victims, a medical check up might have been the thin line between life and death.
In ‘A Culture Worth Dying For‘, Mo attempts to dispute the notion of sudden death, and she discusses the importance of regular medical checkups and how it is often taken for granted. Mo also speaks to the family of Chantel Johnson, who was discovered to have leukemia during routine antenatal tests and died within a year of her diagnosis.
If you can’t remember when your last medical check up was, or you’ve never had one, tune in to find out for everything you need to know about healthy, prolonged living.
