Royal Warrior is a social enterprise that fights against cancer and support those affected and their families in very unique ways. We understand that fighting cancer is a very difficult and stressful challenging process for both the patient, care giver and the family members as well. Our priority is help make the journey and the after-life less stressful.
I am Gwendoline Ngu a Hospice nurse and also founder and CEO of Royal Warrior. For me and like so many other people, adversity drove me straight to my purpose. After being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 27, went through treatment and just before I could finish treatment, my son got diagnosed with brain cancer. For 11 months we fought with numerous brain surgeries and harsh chemotherapy and weeks and weeks of radiation but at the very end he died. With all this and many other things happening it became clear to me that there is definitely a reason for my pain. I took it upon me to help as many people as possible who are going through cancer or who is struggling with life after. Couple with the fact that I have personally been a victim and now a survivor, my solid nursing background and particularly hospice helps me a lot to understand the needs of our community with this special group. This is how I got known on social media as Royal Warrior.
Our mission is to raise awareness, save lives, boost self-esteem and support patients and families during and after treatment. So far, we have done most of our work in the united states and in Cameroon mostly. Amongst so many of our programs, Our Look Good Feel Good program which is our signature program has been a huge success. The advantages and feedback from our warriors is amazing.

Here some common cancer basics everyone should know.
Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases. Although there are many kinds of cancer, all cancers start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and death.
Signs and symptoms are both signals of injury, illness, disease – signals that something is not right in the body.
A sign is a signal that can be seen by someone else – maybe a loved one, or a doctor, nurse, or other health care professional. For example, fever, fast breathing, and abnormal lung sounds heard through a stethoscope may be signs of pneumonia.
A symptom is a signal that’s felt or noticed by the person who has it, but may not be easily be seen by anyone else. For example, weakness, aching, and feeling shortness of breath may be symptoms of pneumonia and many other things
Having one sign or symptom may not be enough to figure out what’s causing it. For example, a rash in a child could be a sign of a number of things, such as, measles, a skin infection, or a food allergy. But if the child has the rash along with other signs and symptoms like a high fever, chills, achiness, and a sore throat, then a doctor can get a better picture of the illness. Sometimes, a patient’s signs and symptoms still don’t give the doctor enough clues to be sure what’s causing the illness. Then medical tests, such as x-rays, blood tests, or a biopsy may be needed.
Cancer is a group of diseases that can cause almost any sign or symptom. The signs and symptoms will depend on where the cancer is, how big it is, and how much it affects the organs or tissues. If a cancer has spread (metastasized), signs or symptoms may appear in different parts of the body
