Our Story

Non-governmental Organization in Mesquite, Texas and Owerri, Nigeria

David Omenukor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Health based nongovernmental organization powered and driven by the passion to reduce or even stop the scourge and devastation of cancer in the world.

The foundation does this by creating awareness and providing information on the necessary steps needed to combat cancer in our society. To this end, the foundation provides free cancer screening to rural and the underserved communities with no access to healthcare.

​ The decision to establish the non-governmental organization in Mesquite, Texas and Owerri, Nigeria, in 2014 was in memory of the late David Omenukor, whose untimely but preventable death in 2013 due to colon cancer caused so much pain and anguish among his family, friends, and community. It is the family’s resolve to continue David’s fight against cancer through the foundation so that no one else will go through a similar experience.

The Foundation began its journey focusing attention on colorectal cancer but the devastating impact of other types of cancer like prostate , cervical and breast cancers have compelled the foundation to extend its fight against cancer to these areas.

To this end, the foundation provides free cancer screening for colorectal, prostate, cervical, and breast to rural and underserved communities with no access to healthcare since early screening is the best approach to avoid cancer. We provide free cholesterol, diabetic; and hypertension screenings. These comorbidities can complicate health issues leading to poor health outcomes.
