Meet the Children

Emmanuel Obienu's Story

Emmanuel, a sharp, happy, playful, mischievous 5 -year-old. Emmanuel just loves to sing, dance, jump, climb, and run. Every time he walks into a room, he lights up the place with his antics. He loves to play around with friends especially Inioluwa a fellow cancer survivor; and also play pranks.

Emmanuel was diagnosed with Wilms’ Tumor in December 2016. His mother was devastated and confused because she never knew that children could have cancer. It was indeed a big one for the family as his sister had to stop school; and they had to move from Togo to Nigeria, leaving their businesses.

He is a bright child and knows the names of his doctors and drugs. With the help of TDCF partners, Emmanuel got a scholarship and his back to school to play with his friends in school and learn the names of his teachers and primary school books.
