Last month, Wana Udobang, On Air Personality on 92.3 Inspiration FM & BellaNaija contributor, collaborated with Sebeccly Cancer Care and Support Center (SCC), an organization dedicated to ending breast cancer through the power of grassroots action and advocacy by providing information, support, and campaigning for improved standards of care for patients in the 1K4Cancer Campaign.

The 1K4Cancer initiative arises from the dire need to assist breast cancer patients who cannot afford treatment. The idea is that if one thousand people donate one thousand naira each, 1K4Cancer will successfully raise one million naira for breast cancer patients. The funds will go towards chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for a few women who are currently under the care of SCC.

Throughout October, Wana spent most of her time canvassing offices, churches and popular hangouts like Silverbird Galleria canvassing for funds towards this worthy initiative. We are happy to report that so far the campaign has raised, One Million, One Hundred and Sixty Thousand Naira (=N=1,160,000.00) and counting! This victory goes to show just how much of a difference we can make if we all come together.

But the fight against cancer does not stop in October. The 1k4Cancer Campaign is gaining momentum, so please help out in any way you can using the details below.

Wana, Sebeccly Cancer Care and Support Center (SCC), we at Bellanaija.com and everyone involved would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all who have supported this campaign so far! THANK YOU!

      Just read a related post of yours (My breast and I) and after reading this i am going to contribute my bit to this cause for two reasons; my mum is a survivor and i have a huge healthy crush on you.I am off to the bank now.
      On a related note, Wana can you help us with an update on the Abia University rape case?I would specifically like to hear from Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the Youth Minister.We heard he was handling the case most impressively but in the last few weeks nothing has been heard of that matter.That case must not die and must remain in the forefront of blogs and the media.
      Also, the Ekiti state governor’s wife mentioned the case of a 12 year old orphan that was raped by a couple of police men last year who just gave birth weeks ago.We, the public have been promised that the case is being pursued, we need to influential persons like yourself and sites like this to keep the authorities on their toes until justice is not just done but seen to be done.
      God bless.
