The 5th annual Exquisite Magazine Against Cancer (EMAC) walk held on Saturday, September 3rd 2016 with a walk between the LTV Grounds and the Ikeja environs in Lagos. The aim of the event was to create awareness for cervical cancer and encourage people to get screened and spread the word about cervical cancer, which is killing one woman every hour in Nigeria.

The highlight of the walk was encouraging people to attend the free screening sessions which will be held every Friday from Friday September 9th till Sunday, October 9th 2016 at Optimal cancer care foundation, 118 bode Thomas road, Surulere. All women are encouraged to come for the free screening even if you did not attend the walk.

According to Tewa Onasanya, the founder of Exquisite magazine and the EMAC Walk,

“This year, we have been able to capture more people, especially the young sexually active women who are also at risk of cervical cancer, a form of cancer that is 100% preventable and one of the few cancers that presents a pre-cancer stage. We appreciate everyone that came out for the walk to raise more awareness and support our free screening campaign “.

      They didn’t. They just do VIA and next thing you are asked to do if you have cervical lesions is to take cervarix of more than 25k or cryotherapy for 35k. That’s the part that baffles me; no Pap smear, no biopsy or whatever to see if the changes occurring in your cervix are cancerous or not.
