Does your DNA put you at risk?  Hear from Dr. Wesley Francis as he talks about:

  • GENETICS: Genetics is a branch of biology concerned with the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms
  • BRCA1 and BRCA2 are two genes that are important to fighting cancer
  • Men being diagnosed with Breast Cancer
  • And more…. Come prepared to ask questions.

Congratulations you all for a job well done on the first ever Virtual Ball.   The event was a mammoth task to execute, but the results were phenomenal.

Who would have thought a virtual ball would have reached so many sponsors that unselfishly supported the mission and vision of the Cancer Society of The Bahamas financially during this critical time of the Corona Virus pandemic.

Thank you Lovern Wildgoose and Nicole Leary-Imhoff, as well as your Committee, as you all have proven that your time and talents are priceless.  This year’s event has set the standard and provided a blueprint for next year’s event to be even bigger and better.

Of course we could never repay you for all that you do for the Cancer Society of The Bahamas, but if the world becomes a better place tomorrow, it will happen because of volunteers like you.


The Cancer Society in partnership with the Bahamas Association of Physiotherapists will be holding group sessions for ALL persons diagnosed with cancer.  Group sessions will include:
– Exercises for mobility
– Education on Lymphedema and Manual Lymphatic Drainage
– Education on FAQ’s
For more information, call the office at (242) 323-4482 or (242) 323-4441 or email cancersociety@hotmail.com
Due to the COVID protocols, spaces are limited per session.


Do you have a story to tell?  Everybody’s perspectives are different!  A panel of Cancer Survivors will tell their story of how they overcame this disease called CANCER.
