CARING AND SHARING
In 1997 the CANCER SOCIETY OF THE BAHAMAS put plans into action to construct the Cancer Caring Centre after seeing the need to house patients from the Family Islands who were receiving cancer treatment in Nassau. Persons from the various islands were coming into Nassau for treatment, but did not have a comfortable or affordable place to stay. The Committee spread the word and in 1999 huge donations flowed in to make this dream a reality.
A ground breaking ceremony was held on February 18th, 2003; which marked the beginning of the first phase of construction. September 21st, 2004, there was a dedication and blessing ceremony for the Cancer Caring Centre and in October 2004, the 10-room suite and a community kitchen was officially opened. The rooms, with its own private bathroom, are equipped with two twin side beds, night stands, cable TV, air-conditioning unit, ceiling fan and a table with chairs.
Due to the high demand for availability at the CCC, the Cancer Society have put in place plans in the making for a second phase of the Cancer Caring Centre Expansion Project; help us make this another reality by making a donation. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
The Cancer Caring Centre through the years has provided comfort to many who have been afflicted as well as educating others about the importance of early detection. We work hard to exemplify our motto – “Caring and Sharing”.
Our Managers, Staff and Volunteers are always available to assist with the patients’ needs as we strive to make your temporary ‘home away from home’ a warm, welcoming and supportive one. For more information for possible stay at CCC please CLICK HERE.
