DOCTORS HOSPITAL CALLS FOR SUPPORT OF
 
ANNUAL CANCER SOCIETY BALL
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
It’s that time of year again! Preparations for the ninth annual Cancer Society Ball are almost complete….a night of glitz, glamour, fine cuisine, glorious music, but more importantly…of hope and courage!  
 
Cancer is being uncovered at an alarming rate in the Bahamas, so much so that studies are being conducted on an abnormal gene that is being found in Bahamian women that predisposes us to Cancer, among the highest in the world! The Cancer Society has a lot of work to be done in the Bahamas and they continue to need our support.
 
The annual ball, the major fundraiser for the organization, is designed to raise resources used to tend the Cancer Society and its subsidiary programmes, including the Cancer Care Centre which provides Family Island patients in particular, a free place to stay while they are being treated.   The Cancer Caring Centre is truly a place of hope and encouragement.   Operating expenses for the Society average in the range of Three Hundred Thousand ($300,000) each year, to provide a hospice and educate the public about cancers – its prevention and treatment.  
 
Corporate sponsors, Doctors Hospital has been a supporter of the Cancer Society for a number of years, recently continuing its commitment to service within the Bahamian community, with a check presentation to the Cancer Society to assist with the operating costs associated with running its hospice and various programs. “There is no shortage of organizations seeking corporate assistance, all with a worthy cause. At Doctors Hospital, however it is important to us that we assist those organizations in the medical community, our focus being on quality healthcare and preventative care. We are pleased to support the Cancer Society as they continue to make such a lasting difference in the lives of patients with cancer and their families and friends,” stated Charles Sealy, Chief Operating Officer, Doctors Hospital. 
 
The ninth annual Cancer Society ball will take place, Saturday May 29th 2010, at The Wyndham Nassau Resort, Cable Beach, under the theme “The Seasons of Life”. Cocktails are at 7:00pm with Dinner to be served at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at The Cancer Society of the Bahamas, Centreville.
