NATIONAL CANCER WEEK, 2016
The National Cancer Week (NCW) is an advocacy week on the BIG WAR Against Cancer in Nigeria. This year, the NCW commences on Sunday June 5, 2016, which is marked as International Cancer Survivors’ Day, globally.
International Cancer Survivors’ Day is an annual worldwide Celebration of Life that is held on the first Sunday in June. It is a day that people around the world come together to recognize the cancer survivors in their community, to raise awareness of the challenges these survivors face, and, most importantly, to celebrate life.
It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community. It is a day for everyone, whether they are cancer survivors, family members, friends, or medical professionals.
Most people, especially in our environment, believe that cancer is a death sentence. The word ‘cancer, automatically makes people to think the worst. However, the truth is that more people are living longer and better quality lives after cancer than ever before. For instance, there are nearly 14.5 million people living with and beyond cancer in the U.S. today, and more than 32 million cancer survivors worldwide. A ‘survivor’ is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.
International Cancer Survivors’ Day is an opportunity for these cancer survivors – and those who support them – to come together and celebrate this new reality in cancer survivorship. More importantly, it is also a time to advocate for the provision of appropriate infrastructure / systems to further improve cancer survivorship and quality of life of cancer survivors in the nations of the world
The focus of NCW 2016 on healthy lifestyle practices that could potentially result in significant reduction of avoidable cancer deaths in Nigeria.

WORLD CANCER DAY, 2016
World Cancer Day (February 4 every year) is set aside by the United Nations/World Health Organization to raise awareness about cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. World Cancer Day is an opportunity for nations to collectively examine cancer control strategies and to identify winning formulas that will accelerate progress. The goal for all of us is to ensure that fewer people develop cancer, more people are successfully treated and that there is a better quality of life for people during treatment and beyond.
Taking place under the tagline ‘We can. I can.’, World Cancer Day 2016-2018 explores how everyone – as a collective or as individuals – can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer. Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, all people have the power to take various actions to reduce the impact that cancer has on individuals, families and communities.
To mark this year’s World Cancer Day, there shall be a week – long advocacy campaign, led by Prof Pat Utomi, whose 60th Birthday falls on February 6, 2016. These are as follows:
Sunday, January 31, 2016

JANUARY CERVICAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
January is cervical cancer awareness month. Cervical cancer, or cancer of the cervix, is cancer of the neck of the womb. The baby grows in the body of the womb (the upper part). The cervix connects the body of the womb to the vagina (birth canal). In other words, the cervix is the door of life. Sadly, when cervical cancer occurs, this door of life becomes the door to death. Cervical cancer is the easiest of all cancers to prevent; yet it is the second most common cancer killer in Nigerian women.
To mark the Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, there shall be media advocacy throughout the month, aimed at demystifying cervical cancer.
In addition, there shall be free screening programme every Saturday in January and on World Cancer Day, Thursday, February 4, 2016.
VENUE: National Cancer Prevention Programme (NCPP), Surulere, Lagos.
Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria, will join the global celebration of #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2015.
In 2012, the United Nations Foundation designated the first Tuesday in December as ↑↓GoodTuesday, a day to engender and celebrate generosity globally. ↑↓GoodTuesday is also a way of expressing gratitude for life, and for all the progress recorded in the outgoing year. Worldwide, the movement is endorsed, supported and promoted by political, social and business leaders, who come together to champion fund-raising for community development.
The Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP-Nigeria) believes that such national participation is truly appropriate, given the culture of compassionate consideration that Nigerians naturally practise. We find, for instance, that when the press publishes an appeal that some individual needs funds for a certain health procedure, such funds are usually over-subscribed.
As you already know, earlier this year, CECP launched the BIG WAR Against Cancer in Nigeria as the focus of its work for the immediate future. This is an on-going WAR, and will also be the main target of ↑↓GoodTuesday 2015. When this is accomplished, subsequent ↑↓GoodTuesday will focus on other pressing national challenges in respect of education, the elderly and the physically challenged.
To be really effective, the #GivingTuesday celebration in Nigeria will be marked on the first three Tuesdays in December, (i.e., December 1,8,15) 2015.
1. Tuesday December 1, and for the next 15 days, every Nigerian – either as an individual, family member or member of a corporate organization and other group – is urged to donate towards this national effort. Contributions can be made using the following platforms:
A. Sms shortcode “44777” on any of the major mobile networks (Airtel, Etisalat, Glo, MTN) by sending the word ACT“ as an sms to “44777”
B. Electronic transfer using the code “777526” via ATM or online at quickteller.com
C. Direct bank transfer to the First Bank project account in favor of the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP-Nigeria). Account number 2026761622, sort code- 011152390.
