Timothy's Cancer Journey

Timothy is a 20-year-old bright boy who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2017 and has been through 12 cycles of Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, several tests/scans and surgery and is currently on follow-up.

He is a Childhood Cancer Survivor and his best food is Beans and Yam and being the brilliant child that he is, Timothy wrote and passed the 2019/2020 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board Examination (JAMB) and was offered admission into Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro to study Electrical/Electronic Engineering, but his parents cannot afford to fund his academics after spending so much on his cancer treatment with the support of The Dorcas Cancer Foundation.

Although it is the policy of The Dorcas Cancer Foundation to only fund treatment costs; or programs that impact and improve childhood cancer awareness and survival directly, we also care about the wellbeing of our kids even after treatment.

If you would like to support Timothy in any way, Kindly contact us by sending us an email with the subject “Timothy” to or you can call us on +2348070677305 for more information.
