Oh yes! We jogged in style yesterday (15/10/11), looking very sweet in Pink. However, we must not be carried away by the euphoria that we have successfully carried out our annual ritual of jogging, understandably, to raise awareness. The fact still remains that breast cancer is on rampage in this country but sadly only few are aware or cared. Our women are dying needlessly mainly due to ignorance. You wonder, hello, is any one listening to our message? It breaks my heart that after all these years of awareness programmes by BRECAN and other breast cancer organizations, many Nigerian women when diagnosed with breast cancer choose to go to church for prayers expecting miracles instead of going to the hospital. YOU CANNOT PRAY AWAY LUMP! JOIN ME IN SAYING THIS LOUD AND CLEAR BECAUSE I KNOW FOR SURE. We need to step up in this country by campaigning relentlessly against this mentality of faith without work. I’m appealing to you to raise your voice or use your position in your community , places of work and worship in highlighting the breast cancer burden in Nigeria as the loss of our loved ones continues unabated and why we must act now. Join BRECAN in demanding government to “MAKE BREAST CANCER A HEALTH PRIORITY” which is our theme for this year’s pink October programme in line with the mission of UN Assembly on non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
