Cancer Awareness|


Hi Everyone,

Thanks for taking time to read this.  Please make sure you take a moment to look at the picture I have attached.  They say “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” if that’s true — then this picture speak volumes!!

For those of you that don’t know me I am Cindi Silva, a mom, a writer, a communication coach, a meditation teacher, an activist and a breast cancer survivor.  I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Awareness, screening, early detection and an outstanding medical team of doctors, radiotherapists and other healtcare professionals much like my friend Andrew Donkor and the AdCancer Awareness team.

On February 4, 2012 — World Cancer Day — the AdCancer Awareness group will be traveling to Swedru, Ghana and visiting 5 churches and 3 secondary schools to bring cancer Awareness to the villages of Swedru, Ghana

4 Feb. 2012-World Cancer Day, Be part of this medical outreach to Swedru:

5 Churches and 3 Secondary Schools (ages 15-20) Equivalent to High School

My friends Andrew Donkor and his team of dedicated, caring medical professionals will be travelling to the villages of Ghana to explain how Awareness, prevention, screening and early detection of cancer does save lives!!  The entire team including Andrew is doing this on a volunteer basis with no outside funding.  Everything is an out of pocket expense for each of these dedicated, caring healthcare professionals.

We have already seen the effectiveness of cancer awareness campaigns in the US and other countries that have tried these.  We already know they are working!

I am committed to helping my friends Andrew Donkor and the AdCancer Awareness group get the funding they need to save lives!!

The AdCancer Awareness team are already self funding their own transportation, food & lodging for the trip to Swedru. However, they still need $750 to print 4 flyers on cancer Awareness for Breast Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Cervical Cancer and Prostate Cancer.  I want to help them get the additional funding they need.  I want to help them save lives!!

If I could I would donate the $750 myself, but unfortunately I am not in a position to do so.  I can ask for your help, my facebook friends & family, to help save lives by raising cancer Awareness in Ghana.  Here are three ways you could help the AdCancer Awareness Campaign:

1.  A graphic artist or print shop owner could print all four flyers and drop ship them to Andrew Donkor.  He has a pdf file ready to send to you today.

2.  A donation of $1.00 from 750 of you would cover the cost of printing the flyers.

3.  A donation of $1.00 (or more)  from each of you would cover the cost of printing all four flyers as well as help offset the cost of the outreach.

4.  Share this message on your wall.

Please contact me and let me know how you can help the AdCancer Awareness Campaign safe lives.  Together we can help save lives.  Thank you for your help.Typical of the Cancer Seen on a Daily Basis

  4. Hello Cindi, my name is Akua and I am originally from Ghana, however I currently work with the American Cancer Society. I was forwarded your email you put on the More Birthday website and I applaud your efforts to help your friend Andrew Donkor and the AdCancer Awareness team to promote awareness about cancer in Ghana. I believe it is very necessary to propagate cancer awareness within Africa in order to curb the increasing cancer deaths and cases. I believe dedication to grassroot awareness promotion is key and your friend is definitely on the right track. I will be more than happy to post this cause on my personal facebook page to appeal to my fellow colleagues, family and friends.
    My initial assignment with the American Cancer Society had me working as a communication specialist within the Africa Programs. There were a couple of grantees from Ghana that we worked with and I can possibly give you their contact information as possible on the ground resources for your friend. Please send a reply to my work email at akua.abeasi@cancer.org and I will be more than happy to give you the information. Regards and all the best!

    • Dear Akua,

      I just found your response to my cancer awareness posting. I am sorry I didn’t see it before. I am ecstatic to hear from you and most humbly appreciate your kind comments and enthusiastically appreciate your help! Sadly my friends in Ghana were unable to raise the necessary funds to complete the Swedru Outreach at this time. Thank you very much for your help and for posting my blog article about cancer awareness on your facebook page. I will be contacting you today. <3

  5. Oh and by the way, how or where does one donation?
