Two members of BRECAN, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu and Olajumoke Ogundele, are among international cancer advocates attending the 2014 ASCO ( American Society of Clinical Oncologists) holding at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois, USA, May 30 – June 3, themed Science and Society. Several thousands of clinicians, investigators and advocates worldwide will converge at this very important meeting to show case advances in cancer research and the remarkable benefit of investment in science.
As days go by with no end in sight, weariness might start kicking in, that’s human nature, though. But we won’t let it happen! For continuous gain in momentum, there is need to think out of the box, hence this new idea of hanging out. It is fresh and hopefully it will be exciting. It is an informal community gathering around Dugbe cenotaph/Cocoa house/Shoprite axis – the heart of commercial district of Ibadan. Let’s see how it goes on Saturday, May 24, 2014 and days ahead. Join us if you are in Ibadan and environ. Bring along family members and friends. May our feet not wobble till our girls are finally home!
Please circulate the e-poster freely and widely.
With warmest regards.

Ibadan protest march against the abduction of over 200 school girls in Chibok, Bornu State was held on Wednesday April 30, 2014 under the auspices of Oyo State Concerned Women’s Group made up of some
And we are glad we did. While the Commissioner of Police, Oyo State received us, the Oyo State Governor sent his Secretary to the State Government to represent him. Hmmmh, well, the Secretary said that our message would be delivered to the Governor. They kept reassuring us that the federal government was on top of the matter. We hope soooo! We were urged to keep praying! . However, we are of the view that ACTION is urgently needed at this season of anomie than prayers! Great support from the Police who saw us through the march which was a long walk indeed and under the sun! And the media, they were fantastic. Our gratitude goes to Teju Specialist Hospital that provided the ambulance and we were lucky that there was no cause to use it. We appreciate them all. We are creating a community face book page for this event as well for participants and the world at large to have access to information on any development concerning this initiative and related advocacy issues.
