Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Hana Nimer 

Founder and CEO of SAID NGO

Our mission is to try to prevent others from going through what we had to go through and which could have been prevented if our family doctor asked for a simple screening test for colorectal cancer with our yearly physical checkups, or if there were some awareness about the importance of early screening in the prevention of this kind of cancer which strikes 1 in 20, AND is the second most common killer cancers among males and females!

Stop Colon Cancer by providing free prevention tests all over Lebanon.

Support our founder Hana who is running the 42.195 km Marathon on November 11, 2018 to spread the word about colorectal cancer and to raise funds for early screening for this preventable, treatable and curable cancer.

90% of all colorectal cancers are preventable with early screening!     

Hana lost her life's partner to colon cancer, and now she runs on the hope to save lives.

The story began in June 2009, when Said was diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer at the age of 57. Following Said's diagnosis, Hana and the family witnessed the pain Said had to go through for 3 years. Their lives became centered on hospital appointments and post treatments which were equally painful. Said was such a brave fighter, he made it a point to raise awareness about Colorectal cancer. He was 60 years old when he bid his farewells and left this world. Hana felt she needed to keep going with his mission, and that’s how SAID NGO was born.



SAID also stands for: SPREAD AWARENESS INCREASE DETECTION. “Said” also means happy in Arabic

And now the campaign “ #anaSAID : I am happy” is, as Hana describes it, for this beautiful moment when people do their FIT tests and get a negative result; absence of blood in the sample given.

This gratitude mixed with an utter appreciation for life's little moments makes all the hard work worth it.

Our mission is to STOP colon cancer by providing free FIT tests for its early detection. Our goal of $1,500 will provide 500 tests, a portion of the tests that we offer all over Lebanon. This being said, the more funding that we get the more tests that we can offer!



Hana turned 58 this year and after attending the annual NGOS meeting organized by the Beirut Marathon she heard of a training program by BMA called 542. She thought she could talk to 542 runners and the best way was through joining few training runs.


Driven by an unexpected strength, Hana keeps logging more runs, getting stronger, faster, and fitter.

She trains with #teamRocky and the team's vibes are her main motivator to finish her runs. Her story is one of inspiration to the running community. We cannot wait to see her crossing the finish line on Nov 11, 2018.


You can support Hana by running for Said NGO or donating to reach more people, create more awareness and save more lives.
