Hello! My name is Mandi and I am a two-time breast cancer survivor first diagnosed 11 years ago and then 8 years later. This was not my first interaction with breast cancer as I lost my mother when I was 24 to this same disease. In honour of breast cancer awareness month my story was shared through This Day Style Magazine (Oct 14th special edition).
In memory of my mother I founded the Sussie Agu Osoba Breast Cancer Foundation (SAOBCF). The foundation is committed to:
Battling against the rising incidence of Breast Cancer in Nigeria.
Research and advocacy directed towards prevention, early diagnosis and treatment.
Educating women/men, the Nigerian public and physicians about the importance of breast self-examination and the benefit of early detection.
Support for patients, survivors and their families as they cope emotionally and physically with Breast Cancer.
SAOBCF invites you to donate and/or purchase a ticket(s) to our inaugural annual Mandi’s Cancer Aid Gala.
The event will be held on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at Harbour Point in Victoria Island (Event starts at 5pm)
An exciting program hosted by Ifeoma Williams and IK (Big Brother) has been collated for the 600 expected attendees and will feature Live Entertainment and a Pink Wig Fashion Show.
