THE YEAR 2020!

December  28, 2020

So far, the year has been an amazing one and we are glad it's coming to an end. We send our best of wishes during this festive period and also extend our gratitude to all our donors for the gracious support throughout the year. 2020 came with a lot of ups and down, but still we remained resilient in the face of it all. 

The year saw us undergoing a series of projects, from the siting of our new center at Surulere Lagos, to the free cervical and breast ultrasound screening of 1000 community women amongst many other projects. We accomplished these objectives with the aid from the GlobalGiving community at large and other donors. For this, we say THANK YOU!.

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2020!

JUNE - Mask Up Initiative

The Mask Up Initiative was a campaign geared to respond to the Covid 19 global pandemic. The objective was to eliminate/reduce the risk of cancer patients contacting the deadly virus by donating quality face masks to cancer patients and their caregivers. We were able to donate over 1000 masks to cancer patients all over Nigeria.

 

SEPTEMBER - Little by Little Campaign

The Covid-19 pandemic led to a 90% reduction in the number of patients we could treat. The objective of this campaign was to raise funds for the completion of our new Surulere Chemotherapy Clinic. Although this objective hasn't been fully achieved due to inadequate funding, yet we are proud to boast of 70% completion of the building project and hope to get to 100% during the 1st quarter of 2021.

 

OCTOBER - Free Cervical Screenings and Breast Ultrasound

Geared towards achieving the W.H.O ambitious  goal of the elimination of screening 70% of women in LMICs Cervical Cancer, the Foundation started a campaign to give free screenings to 1000 community women in Surulere, Mushin and its environ. The Campaign is  long term due to the fact that, due to the Covid pandemic we cannot have many people in one place at the same time. We shall continue until we achieve our target of screening 1000 women. 

 

NOVEMBER - Portable Hematology Analyzer

Chemotherapy patients need a full blood count before each treatment cycle. For their comfort, we are raising funds for a portable hematology analyzer which will help our patients with accurate and efficient. This project is still active as enough funds haven't been donated. We know we can always count on the GlobalGiving community.

We look forward to 2021 as we continue striving to make the best of impacts to humanity.

The Covid 19 pandemic has affected  all aspects of our lives globally especially in the healthcare sector. Our story at SC Cancer Treatment Foundation is one. During this period when cancer patients are worried about the additional risk of covid19  infection we have not been able to complete our permanent site where patients can be treated with reduced risk of exposure to covid 19 infection.

Our Surulere Clinic building  project has been severely affected because of the lack of funding. This has led to a reduction in the number of patients we are able to give treatment by 90%. 

This little by little fundraising campaign is a great opportunity for us to complete the clinic in time for the Breast Cancer Month in October. Please support us by donating from 14th to 18th September when your donation up to $50.00 USD only will be matched by 50%

This means that your $10 donation becomes $15; $20 becomes $30 and $50 becomes $75, so we can achieve our target of $20,000  faster.  

Please donate from 14th to 18th September at  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/scips

Please share this letter and link  https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/scips with at least 6 people.

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! You will be helping thousands of cancer survivors in Nigeria who cannot help themselves.

Dear Friends of the Foundation,

So much has happened globally since our last report. We hope you have all been keeping safe through the Corona virus pandemic.

This report contains the recent projects and other development undergone by the foundation to provide insights to our vision, which is to provide holistic care for cancer patients in Africa.

First, we are pleased to announce the citing of a new clinical center for the foundation at Surulere, Lagos where adequate and quality treatments can be afforded for cancer patients. The location of the new center, is such that, it is situated in a central area which makes it easily accessible from various routes.

Also, the end of May 2020 saw the foundation embark on a new project which was aimed at donating over 10,000 masks to cancer patients and their caregivers across Nigeria in order to avoid the spread and also limiting cancer patients from being exposed to coronavirus which could seriously affect individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer. 

Alongside these developments, we have been active with  St. Cyril Initiative for Patients’ Support (SCIPS) and  have helped 3 patients with their treatments, with funds gotten from The GlobalGiving Program and Pink Oak Foundation. However, four (4) more patients currently need assistance and we humbly request that you forward this report to family,  colleagues and friends as we are currently running low on funds to help these patients in need. 

Lastly we are pleased that Moji Animashaun, our Executive Director recently became an Alumnus of the Cherie Blair Foundation Mentoring program as a mentor who contributed to the global community. 

Thanks to all of you. The important work we do will not be entirely possible without the help you render and we sincerely do hope to hear from you soon. Please stay safe.

Warmest regards,

Moji

Happy New Year to everyone in the GlobalGiving community! We hope this year is one filled with rewards for everyone’s hard work. 

The St. Cyril Cancer Treatment Foundation is in transition mode as we move to our permanent clinic site. We’ve had some interesting fundraising initiatives as part of our #SupportSCIPS2020 including hosting an art exhibition and walking 10km in the Lagos City Marathon. 

You can follow the journey on our social media channels (@treatcancernig).

#SupportSCIPS2020

In Q4 of 2019, we partnered with The Anne Thomas Project to develop Support S.C.I.P.S. 2020 a year-long fundraising campaign focused on raising $10,000 through collaborations and online campaigns. 

St. Cyril Initiative for Patients’ Support (S.C.I.P.S.) is  our innovative approach to challenge cancer mortality rates by helping more patients pay. 

On December 23rd, 2019, the Omenka Gallery in Lagos hosted our St. Cyril Cancer Treatment Foundation S.C.I.P.S. Into the Holidays fundraiser. We had artwork on auction and sold limited edition silk scarf prints. Some of which are still available on annethomasmedia.com

As part of World Cancer Day activities, #SupportSCIPS2020 participated in the Lagos City Marathon 10km.  We asked our community to sponsor 1k/1km for our walking participant and It was a great rallying point for our existing community and caught the attention of new donors as well.  Our international donors used the GlobalGiving /SCIPS link

Surulere Cancer Treatment Center

We’re moving our chemotherapy treatment services to a permanent location in a more central part of the city. The Surulere Cancer Treatment Center’s layout has been finalized and will feature a 12 chair Chemotherapy room, Private chemotherapy suite , Nurses station, Pharmacy, Ultrasound room, Admin/office, 2 bathrooms and Reception/waiting room. 

We’re excited about this move and look forward to sharing our progress.

Sincerely,

A.Moji Animashaun

Subject: Giving the Gift of peace of mind

Here at the St. Cyril Cancer Treatment Foundation, we are excitedly gearing up for the December holiday season. As we move towards a new year, we’re having a rough few months planning a clinic location transition but we will conquer with our usual grace and fortitude.

UICC Nomination
In the past few weeks, we have inaugurated a new board of trustees whom we will introduce to our GlobalGiving community in due course. We would like to celebrate with one of our board members, Dr. Kingsley Ndoh.

Dr. Ndoh was selected by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) as one of eight aspiring young cancer control professionals to nurture over the next 12 months to become successful and more effective leaders in cancer control and the wider global health community.

As beneficiaries of his generosity and professional support, The Foundation is honored to be part of his community and we wish him a hearty congratulations and wish him an abundance of luck with the training year.

Expansion Plans
Our Mission is to build self-sustaining standard cancer centers with investors who share our long term vision of a viable and profitable business that will attend to the millions of Africans.
To reach our goal of a regional treatment cluster within the SW region of Nigeria, we are soon breaking ground on our new treatment facility. It will include a Radiotherapy Department, Chemotherapy Suites, Mini theatre/Surgical unit, Palliative Care unit and Attachment services including Lab, Pharmacy and Radiology.

We look forward to sharing positive news as we move forward with these plans.


Support S.C.I.P.S. 2020
By 2030 it is estimated that the cancer occurrence and mortality rate will nearly double- 1.28million new cancer cases and 970,000 cancer deaths. Creative methods are required for patients and treatment funding.

St. Cyril Initiative for Patients’ Support (S.C.I.P.S.) is our innovative approach to challenge cancer mortality rates by helping more patients pay.

We have partnered with The Anne Thomas Project to develop Support S.C.I.P.S. 2020 a year-long fundraising campaign focused on raising $10,000 through collaborations and online campaigns. You can follow the journey on our social media channels (@treatcancernig).
The need for cancer treatment is self-evident. We are committed to making this difference and filling the need and we cannot do it without you.
Donate here and please share. We look forward to reaching this goal together. #SupportSCIPS2020
From all of us at St. Cyril, we wish you the happiest of holiday seasons.
Warmest regards

Moji
