WORLD CANCER DAY is commemorated globally by millions of people with cancer awareness walk, fund-raising and other activities. In 2015, we organized World Cancer Day events in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health with high-level oncologists, two (2) female breast cancer survivors and one male breast cancer survivor to discuss what we already know about cancer and what we can do to find cure while reducing late detection of cancer.
Our cancer awareness events were led by celebrities, such as Korede Bello, Ejike Asiegbu, Chidinma Ekile “Miss Kedike” Oge Okoye, etc. at Sheraton Abuja and Lagos.
