Popular singing duo, Bracket are currently making efforts to raise funds to bankroll the treatment of four cancer patients abroad. This comes after one of the dynamic duo, Vast, survived ‘Lymphoma’, a type of cancer of the blood.
Giving an update on his condition recently, Vast said that he had fully recovered from the ailment as confirmed by his doctors. He, however, added that he was still required to make hospital calls for periodic check ups.
“My last checkup was in December. I still have another appointment later this year around May, that would the fifth time I would be going. The doctor said, after the fifth checkup, I should know that I am totally certified cancer free but I would still continue to go for checkup. The doctor said I am very okay. I thank God,” he told Encomium.
Speaking further on their plan to help sufferers, the singers revealed that their foundation already has four cancer patients, Folashade, Tolu, Gladys and Ronke in their plans to be flown abroad for treatment.
“We have started our campaign. We had a concert sometime back but we want it to be on a bigger platform. We had a stand up to cancer concert. A lot of celebrities are already part of this campaign. We already have four patients we want to assist. A lot of people don’t have the money to go out for treatment. We want to stop people from dying from cancer. Apart from raising awareness, we need to build capacity to detect cancer early, treat people who detect late.
“We have four patients Folashade, Gladys, Tolu and Ronke. We need money to take care of these people. Their families need money to keep on surviving as well.
“There are a lot of NGOs who are doing free screening. In Nigeria, there are over two million people living with cancer. We are hoping to use the fund raised to support their families and to get treatment for the patients,” he said.
