Foundation Pays For Treatment Of 25 Cancer Patients

The Pink Oak Cancer Trust, an NGO, on Thursday said it would raise N100 million for the treatment of 25 cancer patients between August and December, this year.
Ms Rita Eugene, Media Assistant of the foundation, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, said the foundation was working with its partners to realise the target.
Eugene explained that Pink Oak was a charity foundation working with other cancer advocacy NGOs to improve access to cancer care.
She listed the member-NGOs to include Breast without Spot (Enugu), Cancer Aware Nigeria (Lagos), Project Pink Blue (Abuja), St. Cyril Cancer Treatment Foundation (Lagos) and Sebeccly Cancer Care (Lagos).
According to her, Mr Fola Adeola, Chairman, Pink Oak Governing Board, has approved the commencement of the programme in fulfilment of the primary goal of the group.
She added that Dr Laz Ude Eze, the Executive Director of the foundation, subsequently announced the launch of the 25 Patients Initiative (25PI), to make it a reality.
“Under this initiative, Pink Oak is working with its 5-member NGOs to identify patients in early cancer stages (Stage 1 or 2) who cannot afford to fund their treatment fully.
“The eligible patients shall be treated at various hospitals in Abuja, Enugu, Ibadan and Lagos already designated as treatment centres for Pink Oak-supported patients.
“Pink Oak shall also not pay cash to patients; rather, all payments shall be made directly to the treatment centres,’’ she said.
Eugene appealed to all good-spirited Nigerians, corporate and religious organisations to donate generously towards this cause to enable the foundation to save more lives from cancer.
