by Seye KuyinuNovember 7, 2014

Pink Pearl Foundation, a public service charity organization on Saturday, 25th October, 2014 marks this year’s World Breast Cancer day with the maiden edition of Breast Cancer Support Group at the Civic Center Victoria Island, Lagos.

The seminar titled: “Day of Hope” for cancer patients focussed on providing preventive education, importance of self examination using necessary kits, the value of physical activity and good nutrition.

The objective of the support group is to help monitor the progress of affected women.

In her opening remarks, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Pink Pearl Foundation, Mrs Orode Ryan-Okpu said “In the last seven years, we have travelled to various states and countries in Africa in order to ensure that a great number of women become more aware about Breast and Cervical cancer.

“This Breast Cancer Support Group is our way of taking the breast cancer advocacy works a notch higher, by creating a trustworthy platform where breast cancer patients and survivors can come together and provide medical and lifestyle help by experts. Our mission is to help more women survive breast cancer”.

Dr Dayo Ajayi, Chief Medical Director – Surgical Oncologist – Renaissance Medical Centre reiterated that the best form of treatment for breast cancer is called the “magic bullet”, emphasising that mothers who engaged in breastfeeding of their babies stands better chance of not having breast cancer. He added that women should pay much importance to self examination especially their armpit as the commonest side cancer spreads is the armpit.

The high point of the seminar was the testimony of a breast cancer survivor whose treatment was sponsored by Pink Pearl Foundation. In her testimony, Mrs Tiebiri Deborah shared her experience with the participants as well as how the foundation helped her pulled through the horrific moments and pains.

Other speakers include Omilola Oshikoya, Motivational Speaker, who gave an inspiring talk on Hope. Funke Kuku, CEO of Dress for Success charged participants on the importance of dress sense.
