On March 1st 2018, Sebeccly Cancer Care successfully relaunched the 1K4Cancer initiative.
There were 10 women on the treatment support waiting list as at March 1st, 2018. Sebeccly Cancer Care reached out to kind hearted individuals through online channels as well as offline events through awareness talks conducted by Team Sebeccly at various locations in Lagos State.
Donors were required to donate a minimum of one thousand naira to support the treatment of breast cancer patients. Sixty one individuals and organisations raised a total of one million and sixteen thousand naira to support the treatment and welfare of six breast cancer patients in March.
