One of our core activities at Sebeccly Cancer Care is coming up with social activities dubbed campaigns to either raise awareness or funds for breast cancer causes; below are some of our campaigns over the years
#12KLLP (The Guinness World Record Event)
We celebrated the Breast Cancer Awareness month with a historic Guinness World Record event tagged “#12KLLP”. The goal of the 12KLLP was to form the largest human awareness pink ribbon the World has ever seen.
The Light Lagos Pink Campaign 2015 through the #12KLLP has galvanized support for the fight against breast reaching not just the over 7,500 participants but over 8 million Nigerians with the message of breast cancer awareness through numerous health talks on radio and television and in the community!
Light Lagos Pink ™
In recognition of breast cancer awareness month (October), Sebeccly Cancer Care sponsors her Light Lagos Pink campaign aimed at stimulating the interest and reminding Lagosians about the importance of early detection of breast cancer and also to support the fight against it.
LLP 2014 kicked off with an opening ceremony at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island on the 3rd of October, 2014 The maiden edition of the Light Lagos Pink Campaign provided information and support to over 1 million people online, via phone conversations, cancer information booths, community events and expert publications . 6 billboards and banners were set up in 4 public parks decorated with the colour pink. The National theatre, Iganmu illuminated pink for 7 nights and over 20 media interviews were granted.
At Light Lagos Pink 2014 we were able to raise funds to support and strengthen access to cancer care through our Sebeccly Chemo and Radiotherapy Access Initiative in Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba and Sebeccly Mastectomy Initiative in General Hospital Lagos.
Thank you to all our donors, who helped us make a difference.
Stamp out Breast Cancer
Stamp out Breast Cancer is a community based programme that drives the message of prevention and early detection of cancers through health education and cancer screening. Target populations are women in markets, religious institutions, work place and other female gatherings
JEANS VS GENES-A breast awareness campaign
‘You can change your jeans not your genes’!
A small number of people have a higher risk of developing breast cancer than the general population because other members of their family have had particular cancers. This is called a family history of cancer. It relates to past and present cancers of blood relatives (people related by birth, not marriage). Having a mother, sister or daughter diagnosed with breast cancer approximately doubles the risk of breast cancer. But more than 8 out of 10 women who have a close relative with breast cancer will never develop it.
1K4Cancer was launched on October 1st 2011, with the goal of raising One Million Naira for the treatment and care of breast cancer patients at Sebeccly by asking one thousand well meaning individuals to give one thousand naira each.
The idea was initiated when Wana Udobang participated in a compelling lecture organized by Sebeccly Cancer Care about cancer and its effects on the affected persons, their families and community. Like the proverbial mustard seed faith, the idea developed and became established thanks to the drive and passion of its initiators.
5Cs and Sex
We launched this educational and mentorship campaign tagged the ‘5 C’s and sex for female secondary and tertiary students in 2012.The 5 C’s stand for cancer awareness, Character, Being( mind, body and soul) Compass of life, Caring for others and ABC of Sex.
