Children Living with Cancer Foundation (CLWCF) is Nigeria only childhood cancer advocacy/funding organization. It’s Non-Governmental and Not for Profit Organization. They’ve in the past 14 years engaged in providing medications and where applicable living expenses for children living with cancer and their families. Their efforts have helped in saving lives of sufferers of childhood cancers with some of them now volunteering as ambassadors in the awareness campaigns and public enlightenment programme of the foundation.
Painfully many childhood cancer sufferers have died even when they have hopes of survival but needed just a little more funding beyond The Foundation efforts could take them. It’s in the light of this that Children Living with Cancer Foundation have created a forum for discussion on raising awareness about childhood cancer with a theme: PASSION FOR LIFE.
It’s a gathering of socially responsible individuals and organizations to discuss the need for concerted efforts at helping to save lives of childhood cancer sufferers, and make all stakeholders come to the realization that cancer is curable and not a death sentence. With much collective efforts, the survival rate of childhood cancer sufferers in Nigeria can be pushed to 10:10 from the present 1:10 ratio.
According to Dr. Nneka Nwobbi – The Founder of the Foundation, the event will hold on July 21st, 2017 at The Little Theatre Hall of Lagos Country Club, Joel Ogunaike Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos at 11am.
