I Was Diagnosed With Stage 2 Breast Cancer In 2019 After I Hit My Breast Against A Hard Surface Which Led To Injuries On My Breast. After My Diagnosis, I Was Placed On 6 Rounds Of Chemotherapy And Then Went On To Take An Additional 2o Rounds Of Chemotherapy Because I Had To Repeat Some Of My Treatment As A Result Of Treatment Delays While Looking For Funds In 2021, I Needed To Have Radiotherapy To Complete My Treatment And This Cost N970,000. I Was Able To Raise N500,000 And Needed N470,000 To Complete My Treatment. I Reached Out To The Foundation For Cancer Care For Help Through Luth Cancer Center Who Graciously Helped To Pay The Balance. I Am Really Grateful To Foundation For Cancer Care And Their Donors Who Made It Possible To Receive Funding For My Treatment. I Would Like To Encourage Women Who Are Within Screening Age To Take Their Annual Breast Cancer Screening Seriously. Early Detection And Saves Lives.

My Name Is Mukaila Adesokan, I Have Four Children And I Am A Trader. I Was Diagnosed With Cancer Of The Neck And Throat In 2020 During The Covid Pandemic In Ghana. I Was Told That I Would Undergo Surgery And This Would Affect My Vocal Abilities Then I Decided To Come Back To Nigeria To Seek Treatment. I Went To UCH Ibadan And Was Referred To Luth Cancer Center To Undergo Radiotherapy And Needed Over 1.2 Million Naira, But I Could Only Raise N180,000 Because I Had Expended So Much In Ghana And This Affected My Business. I Pleaded For Help At Luth Nsia And Was Directed To The Foundation For Cancer Where The Rest Of My Bill For Radiotherapy Was Settled. I Am Grateful To The Foundation For Their Help And I Pray That God Will Continue To Bless Them And Everyone Who Supports Them In Fundraising. I Would Also Like To Encourage All The Donors Of The Foundation To Continue Because Their Funds Go A Long Way To Help Those Who Lack Finances.
Mr. Mukaila Adesokan
I was diagnosed with cancer in 2021. After some tests, I was asked to pay the sum of N1 million for radiotherapy. I was confused because I didn’t know how to raise that kind of money. A doctor at LUTH, where I was diagnosed, reached out to the Foundation for Cancer on my behalf and they helped me with the sum of N460,000. My children were able to raise the balance. I am really grateful for that kind gesture.
