Summary of your enterprise
Project PINK BLUE is a youth-led cancer initiative aimed at phasing out late/advance diagnosis of cancer in Nigeria, providing the following free innovative services: 1. INSPIRATIONAL STORIES INSPIRATIONAL CHANGE FOR CANCER SURVIVORS (ISIC 4 CS): we visit cancer patients and share inspiring stories of hope, motivation and recovery with them on their hospital beds and after survival to give them hope. The fear that all cancers spread to the brain and in some cases spread to other parts of the body weakens the faith and hope of many Nigerians who have been diagnosed of cancer. Hence, our focus is to dissuade negative thoughts and poor emotional stability. 2. Cancer Survivors Series (CSS): Currently, there is no organized available African or Nigerian cancer survivor documentary and media/educational contents in Nigeria. There is also no African or Nigerian song or music on cancer in Nigeria. In medical missions and outreaches, most documentaries/educational contents and songs used are European and American based, most times, the women do not really understand the foreign accent and this usually cause misconception and a wrong perception that cancer is white peoples disease. We want to dissuade that wrong misconception with our Cancer Survivors Radio & TV Series which features collections of true-life stories of cancer survivors in the form of documentaries and live shows, sharing their stories of hope and scientists exploring and researching for remedies for the disease. 3. Nigerias First Cause Marketing & Financial Aids Project: linking cancer patients, survivors and caregivers with financial opportunities to help them care, medical bills, economic empowerment and stay-out work challenges. A. Nigerias first Online Cause Marketing B. Nigerias first Off-line Cause Marketing 4. Abuja Cancer Diary 5. Medical Missions with Mobile Cancer Screening Facility
