Andy OjelabiAndy is an inspiration. He is a CML patient himself and pledged to fundraise and climb Mt Kilimanjaro as a way to give back and raise awareness of CML in Nigeria.

"I pledged to do this for me and for all CML patients in Nigeria, the government doesn't know we exist because this is a rare cacer. There are 1,800 cases of CML in Nigeria. The population in Nigeria is over 200 million. I came here to raise awareness. It's not cheap, but it's what I really want to do. I want to make a change. It might not be possible in a lifetime but at least I'll give it a try. It's better than not trying. From there I'll see what happens".
