That time that @rfcang showed up to bring #breastcancerawareness through drama at Keffi Market Obalende. We learned that entertainment is a great way to dispel myths and stigmas. #riseup #challengeaccepted #mbc #stageiv #uicc #WCD #keffimarket
Run For a Cure Africa marked World Cancer Day 2018 at Keffi Market, Obalende, Lagos. Through a Nollywood style performance, RFCA brought awareness to the market audience. The audience was educated and entertained about the necessity of early detection and regular screenings.
RFCA partners with Worldwide Breast Cancer to bring culturally relevant educational materials to Nigeria. Through the #KNOWYOURLEMONS campaign, RFCA and Worldwide Breast Cancer hope to create greater awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer among Nigerians.

Run For a Cure Africa started nine years ago to provide free screenings. Now we are in four countries providing access to not only breast cancer screenings, but also diagnostics, and treatment. We still want to do more. Please watch and get involved.
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.
