Breaking the silence
Sebeccly Cancer Care (Sebeccly) is a not-for-profit cancer care and advocacy organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to women living with breast cancer care. Our mandate is geared towards the provision of cancer information services and supportive services to those affected by cancer, with the vision to reduce the cancer burden in Nigeria by advocating for improved conditions of care in our health institutions.
Sebeccly was founded in 2006 by Dr Omolola Salako out of a need to improve cancer services. These services range from prevention to early diagnosis, effective treatment, rehabilitation and supportive care. Sebeccly works with newly diagnosed patients, survivors, care givers; patient advocates, journalists and health care professionals.
We are passionate about cancer advocacy: by providing a platform for those affected by cancer to voice their opinions, share their stories, engage with cancer stakeholders and be influential in policy making.
Nothing speaks more clearly to the shocking breast cancer health disparities than the fact that Black women are less likely than white women to get breast cancer,
