With over 50,000 Nigerian women being diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer per annum, the financial burden of their cancer care is huge. Many women are not able to start or complete treatment because cancer treatment is prohibitively expensive.
This scenario, played out in 2011, when a 24-year-old breast cancer patient named Veronica, shared her financial challenge at one of Sebeccly’s programmes. Wana Udobang (Wana Wana) challenged Nigerians to donate at least N1,000 each to support Veronica. Sebeccly raised 1 million in one month, and over N3,000,000 in total that year, and as a result, Veronica and 3 more women received their treatment at Lagos University Teaching Hospital.
