We had the good fortune of connecting with Ngozi Ejedimu and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ngozi, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Experience, experience and storytelling. I have been able to use my experience to build up expertise in the area of breast cancer awareness and use art and storytelling to pass the same message across in different ways.
Early detection is key and women need to be proactive about their health, but all this is useless if you don’t take action

What should our readers know about your business?
I started Whatcancernaija as a medium through which I could share my story, but as time went on, I noticed that was a gap, that middle man between the doctor and patient, where the patient was always clueless with regards to steps to take from diagnosis to aftercare. What sets me apart is the fact that I have been there, done that so I understand what the patient needs which is different from what the doctor can offer.

I tried to go into consulting 2 years ago, but didn’t get a single client, got discouraged and gave us. Started again in January 2022 and I have had over 10 paying clients so far. I guess the first time something doesn’t work out, might not mean that it’s the wrong route, timing is everything. I have built up more trust and expertise.

I want the world to know that making lemonade out of lemons is actually possible and I would like support to help Nigerian women with breast cancer through The Judah Foundation for Breast Cancer which is based in Lagos, Nigeria.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
In Nigeria, there is a landmark beach, Omu resort and maybe a fun day out at Jara Beach Resort. Cactus Restaurant has fantastic food, this is one of my favorite places to visit.

Confession though, I have become a bit of a homebody due to traffic in Lagos.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My first shout-out goes to God, for helping me see beyond the fact that I had breast cancer and could use my story and experience to help others. My husband, who constantly encourages me not to give up and was a fantastic caregiver
