Talented Nigerian actress Adaora Ukoh, having been off the movie scene for quite a while, is set to return with the launch of a non-governmental organization to help spread the news of early detection of cancer in women.
Called #feedthestreet, the actress and her team will be speaking to women to help reduce the high rate of the deadly disease.
The foundation, as revealed by the actress, is borne out of the cause of “Help Jennifer Fight Cancer Campaign”.
According to her: “I kept having this feeling that I should reach out and do more, so on my birthday, God put it in my heart to kick-start a foundation to basically do two things. Help women get early detection for any type of cancer that basically attack the women folks; breast cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer.
“Early detection is the best cure. Get tested today. Jennifer never got screened or tested not even when the ailment had started due to funds. I can bet Jennifer never knew what she had until it deteriorated. So in that spirit of reaching out I decided the best way to celebrate my birthday for the first time, I will cook, share my cakes , drinks, give them some supplies to a hundred beggars on the street in an initiative called #feedthestreet.
“Breast cancer is super deadly and the fight to stay alive through it all….. i visited Jennifer’s hospital bed in Abuja and I can see through her pains to stay alive. We are committed to this cause and God will see us through,” she stated.
