Alex, Denrele Edun auctioned for cancer fund



Alex Asogwa, BBNaija finalist, and Denrele Edun, TV personality, were auctioned in Abuja, to raise funds for cancer patients.

At the Project Pink Blue fundraising show that held in Abuja on Thursday night, Alex was auctioned for N300,000 and adopted by her new family from Niger state after a tough bargaining process.

NAN reports that the 22-year-old reality star was the host of the event.

“I know what it feels to lose someone close to you as a result of this ailment,” she said.

“I lost two people to cancer not because there were no funds for treatment but because they did not find out on time. Cancer is real and it kills irrespective of your age, class or social status.”

She also called on Nigerians to check themselves regularly so as to commence treatment on time when they are diagnosed with it.

According to a post on her social media platforms before the show, all the proceeds will go into the treatment of cancer patients.

“About to be auctioned for charity. All proceeds from the auction go towards treatment for breast cancer patients,” she wrote on Instagram.

Other celebrities auctioned at the event were Rachael Okonkwo, Kemen, reality star and fitness coach; Bryan Okwara, ex-Mr Nigeria and Charles Okpaleke of Playnetwork.
