The Pink Oak Cancer Trust is excited to announce that it is working with its partners to raise N100 million and sponsor the treatment of 25 or more cancer patients between August and December 2018.
The Pink Oak Governing Board under the leadership of Mr. Fola Adeola has given an approval for this to happen in fulfillment of the primary goal of the foundation. Consequently, the Executive Director, Dr. Laz Ude Eze has announced a launch of the 25 Patients Initiative (25PI) today, 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) but 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 centers for Pink Oak-supported patients. Pink Oak shall not pay cash to patients; rather, all payments shall be made directly to the treatment centers.
Pink Oak is a charity foundation working with other cancer advocacy NGOs to improve access to cancer care. We encourage good-spirited Nigerians, corporate and religious organisations to donate generously towards this cause to enable us save more lives from cancer.
It is pertinent for the public to know that Pink Oak does not recruit patients directly. We only sponsor eligible patients recommended by our member-NGOs. These organisations include Breast Without Spot (Enugu), Cancer Aware Nigeria (Lagos), Project Pink Blue (Abuja), St. Cyril Cancer Treatment Foundation (Lagos) and Sebeccly Cancer Care (Lagos). Other NGOs across the country interested in joining us to fight cancer should contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. All patients who desire our support should kindly reach out to them.
We thank all our donors and partners whose supports have been of immense help to us. Together, we shall defeat cancer in Nigeria. To #DonateToBeatCancer, visit www.pinkoak.org/donation!
