8,000 Nigerian women have died of cervical cancer in 2012.
Since 2009, the George Kerry Life Foundation has run a cervical cancer control campaign which has educated over 100,000 woman, screened over 5,000 women and treated at least 500 women for early pre-cancer cervical lesions.
Every December, in order to garner more support in the fight against cervical cancer in Nigeria, the Foundation holds an annual fundraiser to raise money to keep this campaign running. The fundraiser involves a unique Bake sale/cake auction to raise money.
