Doctor Pierre Catteau, radiologist, died at the age of 84. He was vice-president of the league against cancer for a long time.

Pierre Catteau was born in 1940 near Belgium. He settled in Polynesia in 1983 and was involved for many years with numerous associations. He notably worked within the league against cancer. He chaired, on several occasions, the association of radiologists. He is very committed to free screenings to fight against disease and more specifically against breast cancer.

Dr Catteau has appeared on our radio numerous times to encourage women to get tested. During one of our “coffee guest” shows, he particularly regretted the “reluctance to screen” which he observed in Polynesia and which, according to him, only comes down to lack of information and communication. On this occasion, he declared: “iThere are women who die of breast cancer and who should nots”

We send all our condolences to his family and loved ones.
