Alex Asogwa popularly known as Alex Unusual of Big Brother Naija will host "Show Love" A Music & Comedy Fundraising Charity event on Thursday 15th November, 2018, 6pm at Congress Hall, Transcorp Hilton Abuja. Abuja- Thursday, November 1, 2018. The goal of the music & comedy event is to raise N100million to support the treatment of indigent cancer patients in Nigeria at a fundraising event titled "Show Love" a Music & Comedy Fundraising Show for Cancer Patients. 
"We can create awareness, provide screenings, oncology education, but, if we don't provide financial support to cancer patients for treatment, then our circle of care is not complete and very few lives can be saved. Financing cancer treatment is very expensive and not affordable for millions of Nigerians. Hence, financial support to indigent cancer patients is extremely important to their survival" said Runcie C.W. Chidebe, Executive Director, Project PINK BLUE and the convened.

According to a report on Catastrophic Health Fund for Oncology Care, in Nigeria, a woman needs about N2.1million to N29.2million to treatment breast cancer depending on the type of breast cancer. Because the woman may need about 8 series of diagnosis which may cost between N232,000 to N311,000; she would also need about 3 surgeries which would cost her N670,000 to N3.3million; she would also need chemotherapy for over 10 sessions which may cost about N916,000 to N2.6million depending on the breast cancer and finally, she may also require radiotherapy for 10- 23 sessions, which may cost N138,000 to N360,000. That's for breast cancer treatment in Nigeria.  

For cervical cancer treatment in Nigeria, a woman needs about N1.1million to N3.3million to treat cancer of the cervix. While for prostate cancer, a man needs about N1.3million to N4.5million to treat cancer of the prostate. With a weak national insurance scheme, very few Nigerians can afford to pay for their cancer treatment in Nigeria. This is one of the reasons for a diagnosis of cancer being likened to be a death sentence. Indigent cancer patients needs our support. Please donate to save cancer patients in Nigeria, said Fatima Abba-Gana, Project Manager, Show Love.
