The American Cancer Society says that among the gynaecological cancers (cancer of the uterus, cervical cancer and ovarian cancer), ovarian cancer has the highest rate of deaths.

Researchers believe that the nutrients in them help reduce cancer risk by blocking the formation of cancer causing chemicals and also helps protect against DNA damage.

Simply put, volunteers have hearts of gold. It is an act of sheer selflessness to want to give back to others and the society. At CancerAware Nigeria, our volunteers are the engine of our organisation; without them there would be no us. Our volunteers are kind, considerate, selfless and possess loads of energy. They don't ask for a thank you or payment for what they do, rather they are excited about the opportunity to help others. Today, we appreciate these tireless individua

It was not long after CancerAware Nigeria started as an NGO that we quickly came to accept the realities of being a non-profit in the country and the huge importance of our work. Soon, it became obvious that to fight the growing cancer rate in Nigeria, one would need to go beyond the cancer walks and gala nights to the tangible and intangible nature of cancer, mainly the availability and access to treatment facilities. As such, we embarked on a needs assessment in Lagos state
