Bone Cancer Awareness
Bone Cancer can begin in any bone in the body, but it most commonly affects the pelvis or the long bones in the arms and legs.
Some types of bone cancer occur primarily in children, while others affect mostly adults. Surgical removal is the most common treatment, but chemotherapy and radiation therapy also may be utilized. The decision to use surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy is based on the type of bone cancer being treated.
Please be advised that the Virtual Monthly General Meeting for August have been suspended for the summer.
See you September 13th @ 6:30pm when we will have a virtual meeting on the awareness and early detection of Prostate Cancer.
Please continue to follow us on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updated information on Bone Cancer.

If you had any reservations on being a Thrifter? Here are some Tips on how to Thrift:
- Have an open mind.
- When in doubt, try it on…sometimes it looks better than on the hanger
- Ask yourself, what would I have paid for this same outfit in the store.
- If you like it and it fits, no one would not know that it was not bought in a clothing store.
- More bargain for your bucks.
Come visit the Cancer Society Thrift Store, we are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am to 2pm to help you.
All proceeds goes towards the day-to-day operation of the Cancer Caring Centre. Thank You

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.
