    God bless Cancer Aware! Then NASS will come and make evil servants to sit upon NGOs who do better work than they do like this one saying they are regulating NGOs. God help Nigeria

    This is really heart warming. There is a rising scourge of cancer illnesses in our society today and unfortunately most corporate bodies have turned a blind eye. Thank you cancerAware Nigeria for this laudable initiative. I hope more corporate bodies will partner with them to help reduce the burden of cancer care in Nigeria.
