Charly Boy, Orits Williki, others to join DMF in marking World Prostrate Cancer

The Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation (DMF) has finalised plans to stage a walk in commemoration of this year’s Prostrate Cancer Awareness Day which comes up on November 17 tagged “The Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation March for Men Against Prostrate Cancer”.

The walk is planned to take place on Saturday November 19, 2022, with entertainers Charly Boy, Orits Williki, Fred Amata, Daddy Showkey, Emeka Ossai and many others expected to be part of it.

According to the convener and billionaire philanthropist Dozy Mmobuosi, “The primary goal of organising this walk is to create more awareness about Prostate Cancer and the importance of early testing.”

The five-kilometre walk for men will begin by 8.00am and will have attendees walking from Jibowu Under Bridge to Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos where over 1,000 men will be screened for prostate cancer by seasoned medical professionals.

The Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation has over the last few months held series of free prostrate cancer screenings across the country through the Free Mobile Prostate Cancer Screening Programme which is one of their healthcare initiatives launched in June this year.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. One in six black men get prostrate cancer. Worldwide, an estimated 1,414,259 people were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020. It is the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world. Early detection saves lives!
