CancerAware Nigeria, Sebeccly and 4 Other NGOs Collaborate for World Cancer Day on February 4, 2016. It is a global event that takes place every year with the aim of uniting the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

It aims to save millions of preventable cancer deaths each year by raising awareness and educating about the disease. It encourages individuals and Governments across the world to take action. The theme for this year is #WeCanICan

Here in Nigeria, several non-profit organisations have come together to make February a month of cancer advocacy. There will be several activities during the course of the month.

These include free cervical screening, free breast cancer screening, dedicated cancer helplines, cancer survivorship seminar, helplines on childhood cancer, cancer walks and a charity football match amongst other activities.

Meet the cancer non-profit organisations championing the fight against cancer in Nigeria.

    Keep pushing the movement guys!! All this is sooo amazing! Thank God for the people who are putting in endless hours to create awareness for cancer! As a daughter of a father who survived prostate cancer, I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to consistently get screened because early detection is key! By God’s grace, with things like this, we will be able to eliminate cancer FOR GOOD DURING OUR LIFETIME! Amazing work guys!!
