We Need Helping Hearts:

A cancer diagnosis causes immense stress and stigma, especially in the black community. Through the African Cancer Support Group, The Oladele Foundation provides emotional, psychological, physical and material aid to those battling this disease. We deeply appreciate volunteers giving their time and talent to empower our warriors. Together, we can erase the stigma and foster a compassionate, supportive community.

Help support the community

The more money we raise, the more people we support. Join us on our mission to reduce the number of people dying from cancer and other chronic diseases.
