Do you know that more than 80% of Childhood cancer cases in Nigeria end in death? While developed countries in Europe and America record less than 10% of Childhood cancer cases ending in death. You may ask why? The reason is simple – Awareness. Nigerians are not aware of this silent killer amongst our children hence little support is available and treatment commences late.
Another very important factor speeding up the death of these children is the strong feeling of being all alone. Many affected children feel like an abomination to society, they feel forgotten by their God, and they feel rejected and alone.
We have a responsibility as members of society to use our voice to uplift our children suffering from cancer. Make sure all your comments are only positive words and words of encouragement as we will be showing these posts to the children. Encourage people around you to also drop positive comments.
