Launched in December 2010, CancerOne College is the flesh of celeBritys4africA. All our education outreach is funneled via this program. In its first year CancerOne College reached out to more than 650,000 people in Cameroon, mostly students and older adults all excited to be part of the new fight against cancer. Many local and foreign volunteers from the United States and other parts of the world have been instrumental in educating people on factors that might help to prevent certain cancers such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. These cancers are predominant in Cameroon and most parts of Africa. See cancer facts
Cancer treatment in Africa is scarce and expensive. With limited funding, celeBritys4africA provides need based treatment assistance to individuals who are undergoing cancer treatment or diagnosed with pre-cancerous lesions in the cervix or cancerous tumors on the breast during one of our breast and cervical cancer screening campaigns.
No assistance is provided to individuals within a certain income bracket or families who fall within a certain social status. Our assistance is limited to low income families with dire need.
These individuals are recipients of our Treatment Assistance Program

Breavix™ screening which targets women in low income communities and villages is the screening of both the breast and cervix against cancer. The Breavix program was launched in 2012 and hundreds of women benefit from its free screening each quarter.
In partnership with local health entities, celeBritys4africA covers the cost to screen each woman against cervical and breast cancer. Those with positive screening are referred for follow up at a partner hospital for further evaluation and therapy.
