    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
    hinted.
    Last year the Radio big girl celebrated her birthday at Lilygate
    hotel, Lekki and stars like Alibaba, Yaw, Ik Ogbonna, Uti Nwachukwu, Rukky
    Sanda, JJC, Funny Bone and some others  graced the occasion to shower love to their
    `jolly` colleague.
