Run For A Cure

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 7.6 million deaths in 2008. Yet, about 80% of deaths from cancer can be prevented with early detection and treatment.

Since its inception in March 2009, over 8,000 men, women and children have participated in CS-DON's Run For A Cure cancer awareness campaigns. To date, we have donated mammography machines to Lagos University Teaching Hospital and the Calabar Women and Children’s Hospital, donated thousands of dollars towards cancer research, supported the treatment of 20 children with cancer, and provided cervical cancer screening for over 3500 women.

Families are sometimes unable to afford the medication, feeding and healthcare costs of children affected with cancer. The program encourages individuals to help with the treatment and support of children affected by cancer.

SPINA BIFIDA AWARENESS 

Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida is an incurable and often lethal, malformation of the spine and central nervous system. It mostly affects children do to a deficiency of folic acid during pregnancy, yet is easily prevented through adequate consumption of folic acid before pregnancy.

We work with other stakeholders to increase awareness of Spina Bifida and encourage food production corporations and government to take a more active role in the search for solutions.
