As we gear up for October, breast cancer awareness month. We must ask ourselves the real questions. If you found something in your breast today ... #wherewouldyougo ? This breast cancer awareness month is the start of our #wherewouldyougo campaign to establish a research center for women’s health. We want to answer that question for every woman in Nigeria who has been faced with this challenge. #wherewouldyougo #thebigpinkfight #beyondawareness #stillherestillrunning
Patient Navigator Audio Series
In 2018, Run For a Cure Africa won the #C3Prize from Astellas Pharma US for innovative non-treatment ideas. We produced a true-to-life audio series of the challenges to fighting breast cancer in Nigeria. Listen to the trailer for the Patient Navigator audio series. Click here for more episodes.
#THEBIGPINKFIGHT to Mark World Cancer Day
Once again, Run For a Cure Africa joined forces with Shoprite Nigeria to provide the women of our community with free breast cancer exams and scans. Through this initiative, over 3,100 women and some men in Lagos, Asaba, Onitsha, Abuja, Yobe, and Kano were able to receive clinical exams, wellness checks, ultrasound scans, and mammography for absolutely NO COST. #thebigpinkfight
Winship Cancer Institute visits RFCA
We were privileged to host colleagues from Winship Cancer Institute, Atlanta, Georgia. They observed our education and screening program. Over 10,000 women in West Africa have benefited from this program. In this 10th Anniversary of @rfcang we will continue to provide this support with help from wonderful partners like you and @shoprite_ng. #Morethanarun #ittakesateam#smallstepsbigdifference #strongertogether #legacy #uhc#educatescreentreat #earlydetectionsaveslives #treatmentforall#iamandiwill

Patient Navigation Program
Our patient navigator program (PNP) is the first of its kind in Lagos. The PN is the number one advocate of the patient and helps her navigate through the scary and sometimes unpredictable medical system in Nigeria, by breaking down barriers to accessing treatment. Click here to learn more or call our PN line at 0817 000 1235.
Since 2009, Run For a Cure Africa has been fighting breast cancer in Nigeria. Operating a nonprofit in one of the most dynamic countries in the world has not been easy but it's been worth it. The last year has presented its own set of challenges but because of our partnerships and a great deal of faith and dedication we are #stillherestillrunning. Read about some of our key partners.
