Destiny Amaka Plans To Celebrate Birthday With Cancer Kids At LUTH Tomorrow

In Celebration of her Birthday tomorrow, Tuesday,
December 1, 2105, Nollywood actress cum Cool FM OAP, Destiny Amaka and her
friends will be spending her Day at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital
(LUTH) with children battling cancer.
The curvy diva chose to celebrate her day with cancer
kids because according to her, thousands of children across Africa die yearly
from Cancers with which can be prevented if detected early and they also have
access to financial supports for treatments and modern medical equipment.
In a brief chat with Goldenpearlmedia, Destiny added that
every year she does something charitable and extra-ordinary and this year 2015
is not an exception.

‘’This year I was supposed to do something in Ibadan for
the crippled, elderly and less-privileged, but the project didn’t fly through. I
was really depressed about that until I met someone who encouraged me to still
try do something else as the year is fast coming to an end.
He actually told me about LUTH and their youth/children
department. As soon he said that, I just connected to it and bought the idea.
I went to LUTH the next day and met kids with cancer and
it really touched my heart. I have looked for a way to help cancer patients, not
that any of my friends and family members have been affected, so I give thanks
to God.
Cancer is really an unfortunate thing that singles people
out; black or white, fat or thin.
When I saw those kids, it was so devastated, some parents
sell their lands, properties and even forfeit the school fees of other children
to take care of the chemotherapy for their cancer affected children.
Children are supposed to be happy, joyful, playing and
have the best memories of their life. They shouldn’t be bed-ridden. It is such
a heart-breaking sight to see these children suffer.
So, it is important that we raise awareness for early detection
of cancer in children. I think a lot is being done for adults but the children
are somehow neglected and their numbers are increasing day by day. They can be
saved and helped.
I have registered the Destiny Amaka Give Back Foundation
which would focus of the Children living with cancer across Africa, ‘’she
Last year the Radio big girl celebrated her birthday at Lilygate

`jolly` colleague.
