Every year more women from lower income families are diagnosed with breast cancer. As a result of the lack of financial resources for treatment, drugs, and aftercare, over 60% of cases are reported late, which doesn’t do much to help survivor-ship. Cancer treatment doesn’t only take a physical toll on the patients but also a financial and emotional weight on these women and their families. As an attempt to ease this problem, 1k4Cancer was born. An initiative that raises funds to assist women diagnosed with cancer from low income families with their treatment.
The drive seeks to engage members of the private sector through its fundraising campaigns and simultaneously creating awareness on the ever increasing cost implications of treatment.
The idea was initiated by Wana Udobang and it collaborates with Sebeccly Cancer Care And Support Centre as all the funds raised support the women under the care of SCCSC.
1K4Cancer team’s philosophy is driven by the belief that tiny drops make an ocean; by soliciting a donation of N1000($7) per individual to achieve its goal.
