The fund seeks to give hope to Albinos with skin cancer who cannot afford to pay the enormous cost involved in its treatment.

According to the founder and Chief Executive Officer of TAF, Jake Epelle, the fund which is the first of its kind in the country in the battle against skin cancer for Albinos, would be jointly sponsored by the foundation and the National Hospital.

 Speaking during the signing of the MoU at the National Hospital, Epelle explained that the foundation is aimed at raising funds from stakeholders and well meaning Nigerians to offset the cost incurred by albinos during the course of treatment.

 He expressed optimism that the TCPT fund would ensure that every albino with skin cancer was given a chance for survival, noting that it would go a long way to address various challenges facing albinos and the National Hospital.

He said that the alarming rate of skin cancer among albinos has reached a stage where more pragmatic and direct course of action was required, adding that the foundation in the past year, lost more than three albinos to skin cancer while more were in danger of such fate.

“Some have resigned their fate to God, waiting for death except a miracle happens. The case of Mr Aminu Jude is one of such seemingly hopeless case. Aminu Jude is barely surviving the disease of the skin cancer by the special Grace of God.
