Cancer Survivors create awareness through cancer awareness walk

Lamek Oyoo Ochola, Brigid Odingo – Hope Beyond Cancer

Date grant awarded: August 13, 2019

Kisumu Cancer Support group is a program of Kisumu City Cancer CBO, located at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and referral Hospital. The Hope Beyond Cancer project works with cancer patients and their caregivers by offering psychosocial and spiritual counseling, cancer awareness, and patient support. Lamek Oyoo found that most cancer survivors did not know how to navigate the challenges during and after treatment, and thus this project has the opportunity to improve and promote the self-esteem of cancer patients. Funds from The Pollination Project will be used for visibility and fundraising efforts.
