CancerAware Nigeria, Sebeccly and 4 Other NGOs Collaborate for World Cancer Day on February 4, 2016. It is a global event that takes place every year with the aim of uniting the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

It aims to save millions of preventable cancer deaths each year by raising awareness and educating about the disease. It encourages individuals and Governments across the world to take action. The theme for this year is #WeCanICan

Here in Nigeria, several non-profit organisations have come together to make February a month of cancer advocacy. There will be several activities during the course of the month.

These include free cervical screening, free breast cancer screening, dedicated cancer helplines, cancer survivorship seminar, helplines on childhood cancer, cancer walks and a charity football match amongst other activities.

Meet the cancer non-profit organisations championing the fight against cancer in Nigeria.
