Shoprite Nigeria and Run For a Cure Africa mark World Cancer Day with Free Screening for the Nation

Shoprite Nigeria will once again partner with Run For a Cure Africa (RFCA) to increase early detection of breast cancer in Nigeria. Since 2014, this partnership has brought the life-saving exercise of breast cancer screenings to over 5,000 individuals and dozens of communities in the different regions of Nigeria. For the 2020 World Cancer Day, Shoprite and RFCA want to make an even greater impact by embarking on a nationwide free screening tagged “The BIG Pink Fight”. From February 3 -8, we will be in each of the six regions of Nigeria to provide clinical exams, health checks, educational materials, ultrasound scans and mammography for absolutely NO COST.

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.
