My dear friends,

Our team at St. Cyril are just awesome. We are always thinking of innovative ways to support our patients. That is how SCIPS came to be. Now we had another brain wave that is now a reality. 

The idea started because it is so hard for us to turn someone away because they cannot pay for the drugs and  our SCIPS account is empty. That is the main reason we got an Ultrasound unit. Part of the revenue generated will go into our SCIPS account. The other reason for the ultrasound is so we have another tool for screening  people and catching the cancer early. Yes, it is a race to win.

Are we where we need to be in this race? No. Are we inching toward the goal slowly? Absolutelly. We celebrate each growth and move on up another rung in the ladder with cancer treatment favailable for all as our goal.

Our ultrasound can be used for screening  all four predominant cancers in Nigeria, breast, cervical, prostate and colorectal.

Once diagnosed, the patient needs to start planning his or her treatment  with the onclogist and start within the next 10 -14 days.

 This is where we need you to step in for those who cannot  afford start treatment this promptly. We are so grateful for your past support and hope you will, do more. Donate more. Share our appeals more. Talk about us to your friends, relations and colleagues at work. There are so many in need.  Ask them all to donate to SCIPS @  globalgiving.org/project/scips or visit www.stcyrilfoundation.org  for more info.

Warmest regards,

Moji

Dear friends of St Cyril,

Compliments of the season to all of you. We are all filled with hope and vigor to enter into 2019 expecting positive changes in our lives or continuation of the good things.

One of the good things about 2018 must have been to be able to help us at St Cyril to forge ahead in our vision of providing quality care for all cancer patients in Nigeria.

Whether you donated your money, your time, your professional expertise or collaborated with our organization to make this vision happen, it must be a good feeling. We know it is not easy to donate all we mentioned above, yet you did it. THANK YOU.

2019 is our year to concentrate on treating more patients. You helped us set up our clinic, now help us to fill it with cancer patients who desperately need our financial assistance. Last year we could only help less than 5% of patients who came to us for assistance. This year we want to help  20% .

We need your help right now by setting up a recurring monthly donation of $10 for a minimum period of 12 months through our globalgiving page, https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/scips/ and ask your friends to do the same.

Our goal is to get 1000 people to donate a minimum of $10 a month for 12 months so we can provide treatment for ar least 100 cancer patients in Nigeria.

Imagine, you donate $10 a month for 12 months to help up to 100 cancer patients have a chance at life!

Please let your family and friends know your pledge so they can join you. It is as simple as sending this message to them with your comments.

At the end of every 12th donation, we shall send you a certificate of “GRAND FRIEND OF ST. CYRIL CANCER TREATMENT FOUNDATION”. Please print your attached certificate and proudly display it in your home, office or even your car.  

Once again, thank you.

Warmest regards,

Mojisola

We are eagerly waiting for sponsors from our friends on Globalgiving. We are putting our focus  and efforts on SCIPS for #givingTuesday, so look forward to further updates before the 27th November!

Aduke came to our Isolo Clinic when we had a collaborative program with another cancer NGO to inform and support. We informed nurses by talking about nursing oncology as a specialty in nursing and supported breast cancer survivors by providing free prosthesis, bras and compression sleeves (curtesy of yet another NGO in Canada). She sat quietly in the corner while her mother came to me asking for help for her daughter. She had already lost a child and desperate for Aduke to be saved.

This is a common story in Nigeria. Over 60% of the patients diagnosed will not have the funds to start their treatment immediately leading to growth f the cancer at the original spot (for example breast) and/or traveling through the blood to other parts of the body (for example brain and bone)

S.C.I.P.S. will help St Cyril Foundation increase the number of patients who can start treatment as soon as the cancer is confirmed.  The more times we can do this, the better the outcome will be for cancer overall in Nigeria.

Help us to help Aduke and people like her. The World Health Organization predicts that 63% of the 25 million anticipated new cancer cases by 2030 will be in low and middle income countries like Nigeria. There is an urgent need to start helping now so there is a system in place for the long term.

We can only do this with your support.   Please donate to S.C.I.P.S.-

  • one chemotherapy treatment at a time
  • one surgery at a time
  • one radiotherapy treatment at a time

So we can ensure treatment for all, let us ensure treatment for ONE.

Warmest regards,

Moji
