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

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

Dear all,

It is time to let you know about what is going on with us at the Foundation. I hope your Summer is going well, wherever you are in the world. Summer is always packed with family fun times anywhere I  the world, so enjoy.

Things were slow going into the second quarter of this year but towards the end of the quarter, things began to pick up pace. Early in the quarter we caught up with our ambassador, Mofe a well known Nigerian actor and got him to take this photograph below with one of our signs. We have been doing this with many other people in Nigeria and will share them with you periodically 

Our other important program is the opportunity to participate in the Global Health Catalyst Summit hosted by Harvard Medical School. We were very excited to the Summit which gave us an opportunity to showcase St Cyril Fou dation and the work we have been doing and want our long term plans look like. We have already started working on opening our next center which will provide more kinds of treatment for our patients. It will include radiotherapy and a mini surgical center.

As our next GlobalGiving  campaign starts, we hope you will forward our flyers to all your family and friends. We are really going to need to have many more donors to help us make a difference in cancer treatment in Nigeria and later, Africa. Our social media team (see them at work in one of our photos below) have been working very hard to improve our followers hip and GlobalGiving and lightful have been really helpful with the webinars and tutorials. Please follow us if you are not already. If you are, tell your friends to look us up on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @treatcancernig  Very easy to remember.

We want to say a big thank you to all of you for contributing to SCIPS. Because of your donations and those received locally, we have been able to help  60% more people have cancer treatments than we did in the year before. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!

Warmest regards,

Mojisola

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
