Governor’s wife ‘saves ‘ 30 cancer patients at National Hospital

A kind gesture from Kebbi State Governor’s wife, Dr Zainab Bagudu, has once again, highlighted the plight of cancer patients in Nigeria. GBENGA OMOKHUNU reports.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines cancer as a group of diseases that involve abnormal cell growth which is capable of metastasis (the spread of cancer cells from the initial or primary site of the disease to another part of the body).

However, experts say not all cancers possess the ability to metastasise to other locations in the body via lymph or blood. Cancers could be in various types, such as cervical, ovarian, breast, lung, cancer of the blood (leukemia), prostate cancer and many others. Like  many other countries in the world, the disease is wrecking great havoc in Nigeria, killing people in thousands each year. Sadly,  a good number of Nigerians are suffering from clinical features of the disease or another, but they have  no idea that it is cancer that is gradually destroying their lives.
