Nigeria's First Colorectal Cancer Foundation
Who Are We
Founded in 2016 by Eniola Omoro Akintunde after the death of her husband from cancer the year before, Eniola and her team dedicated themselves in creating awareness for colorectal cancer, this led to the creation of the Niola Colorectal Cancer Foundation (NCCF) being the first Non-Governmental Organization committed to creating awareness for colorectal cancer while also advocating for better cancer management and controlling patient navigation and dishing out palliatives.
Here's What We're striving for.
We advocate to ensure increased awareness, screening, access to quality medical treatments and patients navigation while leveraging solid partnerships with our stakeholders and volunteers.
Here's what we see in our future.
To ensure Nigerians from age 40years be screened for Colorectal Cancer, this can be achieved by having minimum of two Screening centers in each state which will be equipped with Stool-based screening service ; Guaiac-Based Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) and Fecal immunochemical test (FIT) including Colonoscopy unit by the year 2030 so has to have a free colorectal cancer patients in Nigeria and Africa at large. The screening Centers will facilitate early detection of the disease, accurate assessment and allow appropriate management before the disease becomes life threatening.
