Africa Cancer Foundation would like to invite you this weekend to the #cruiseforcancer event that will be taking place on Saturday, November 14th from 9-11 am at the Good Shepherd Church along Ngong Road.
This is a team up campaign organized by The Tin Roof Foundation, K-Krew Trust Colour my World, Africa Cancer Foundation and Joe Aketch Foundation; among others, to raise funds for Mikkel and Merlyn and by extension the children with Cancer in the Kenyatta National Hospital.
Team Up is the campaign for Team M2 (Team Mikkel and Merlyn) sponsored by Tin Roof Foundation, K-Krew Trust and Africa Cancer Foundation to raise the necessary funds for the cancer treatment and aftercare of 2 ½ year old Mikkel and 15 year old Merlyn. To join this activity, we are asking you to build a Team from your family, co-workers, sports team, motorcycle club, church group, university or any other group of people, to Team Up for Mikkel and Merlyn and to be a part of their story of beating cancer.
Mikkel is a 2 1/2 year old little boy from the Ongata Rongai area of Nairobi. He was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma at four months old but due to lack of adequate treatment his condition has progressed to Neuroblastoma. Due to the generosity of the friends of Tin Roof Foundation, Mikkel is currently a patient at the Max Super Speciality Hospital in India, but funds have run out and his treatment has stopped. If he does not receive the treatments the doctors have said his chances of survival are very low.
Merlyn is a 15 year old girl from Nairobi who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Lymphoma. Due to proper treatment not being available in Kenya, her parents arranged for her treatment in India. Merlyn spent December 2014 – July 2015 receiving aggressive treatment in India. After her return to Kenya the cancer has returned. Her parents used all their finances to fund her December – July treatment and have nothing left for the next round of treatment that is desperately needed. The doctors have stated that she needs to return to India by the end of November 2015 in order to halt the cancer from spreading.
During the event you may bring your donations in the form of cash, Stationery or toiletries for the children.
