The Maiden edition of BRECAN Youth4Pink Workshop was held on October 25, 2014 at the BRECAN Centre in Ibadan themed “Let’s talk about breast cancer, the truth about breast cancer”. It was overwhelmingly successful, a strong indication that our youth earnestly yearn for forum like this for motivation to become responsible and productive citizens of our society. Participants were drawn from schools in Ibadan and Emeabiam as well as Youth –led NGOS in Ibadan. The resource persons were Dr. A.F. Ademola, Consultant Surgeon, University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan, Dr. Charles Okuofo, Registrar, Uthman dan Fodio University Teaching Hospital (UDFTH) Sokoto, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, Founder/President, BRECAN and Mr Desmond Nwabugwu, IT Specialist. The workshop also attracted the presence of the media, Radio Nigeria and the Nation. Though we started out small, being a test run, with 24 participants but we are highly encouraged by the zeal of the attendees to acquire knowledge about breast cancer and their excitement for the opportunity given by BRECAN to get engaged in the conversation on how to mobilize their respective communities into action against breast cancer. Without doubt, we will be back next year for another edition and a big one!
