Shoprite Nigeria puts its weight behind breast cancer awareness

Posted by

Free breast cancer screenings will again be available, this time in all six regions of Nigeria
as a result of the long-standing partnership between Shoprite Nigeria and Run For a Cure
Africa (RFCA).

The Big Pink Fight screenings take place from 3-8 February 2020 and gives women access
to among others clinical breast exams, ultrasound scans and mammograms. Four of the
screening stations will be situated at Shoprite stores -Asaba Mall in Delta state, Onitsha Mall
in Anambra state, Novare Gateway Mall in FCT Abuja and Ado Bayero Mall in Kano state.

“The early detection of the disease is a crucial factor in its successful treatment, however,
the sad reality in Nigeria 75% of breast cancer cases are diagnosed too late, when treatment
is prohibitively expensive and survival rates greatly diminished,” says Dr Ebele Mbanugo,
founder and executive director of RFCA.

Shoprite’s partnership with RFCA dates back to 2014, when the partners joined hands to raise awareness of breast cancer through among others the roll-out of free screenings.

Some 5000 women have since benefited from these screenings taking place annually.
