We are happy to inspire our community women at the 2019 World Cancer Day final commemoration event held in Lagos.
The event which took place at the public hall at the headquarters of Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura in Agege, Lagos, brought and celebrated 3 breast cancer survivors who were honored for their heroic battle with cancer.
They also shared their survival journey with other women who were motivated by their stories to stand up and take personal and collective action against cancer. A number of the women in attendance who had been concealing breast lumps and other early signs/symptoms of breast diseases also came out to seek help.
The event rounded up with gift presentation to survivors, cutting of cakes, photo shoot, and clinical breast examination for all participants.
The event was the second in a series to commemorate the 2019 World Cancer Day, having earlier visited the Woodland Schools, Shasha, Lagos in collaboration with the Young African Leaders Initiative Alumni Association, Southwest Nigeria Chapter for cancer awareness and education for students and staff of the school.
