Thank you for being there for our patients as they face one of the most challenging situations anyone can go through - a cancer diagnosis.

Unfortunately, we lost 3 patients who were beneficiaries of the 2018 programme.
May their souls rest in peace. Please remember their loved ones in your prayers.

We will continue to strive and ensure everyone facing a cancer diagnosis in Nigeria has access to timely treatment and support.

We are embarking on the 4th edition of the #31DaysOfPink Breast Cancer Campaign starting October 1st, 2021 and we are hoping to support even more beneficiaries than last year. We continue to count on your support.

Thank you from all of us @ CancerAware Nigeria

More Info

Caroline is a widow with 4 children. She lives in Lagos, Nigeria. Sometime in 2013, she felt a lump under her armpit. She went to a nearby local health centre and was told that it was just fat and nothing to worry about. 

Fast forward to 2015, Caroline was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. A large percentage of the population in Nigeria live on less than $1 a day. 

A cancer diagnosis amounts to a death sentence as patients cannot afford the high cost of treatment and they have no health insurance. In Nigeria, breast cancer is the most common cancer accounting for about 40 deaths a day. 

 Caroline is just one of the women diagnosed with breast cancer that CancerAware Nigeria, a Lagos based charity is making a difference in their lives. In addition to providing psychosocial support, they also cover the cost of their cancer treatments, feeding and other expenses. 

The charity also offer free breast cancer screening in low income and underserved communities. Their goal is to reduce the cancer incidence in Nigeria through prevention, early detection and support. 

Your donation will help them move closer to achieving this. Thank you for helping out. To learn more about their life-saving work, visit their website www.canceraware.org.ng
