Lets Help Beat Early Cancer

$491 of $65,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 10 days



Hello, my name is Leonard. A few years ago I lost both parents to this vicious disease, commonly known as cancer. So this is why myself, a team of three other associates, the Caribbean Breast Cancer Foundation and SVG Cancer Society are starting this gofund campaign. It brings awareness to many communities around the world and also encourages many to go get regular check-up screenings. 

Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. Certain types of cancer start in the breast, known as breast cancer. Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. In the Caribbean, cancer is the second leading cause of death. In 2016, an estimated 65% of all cancer deaths occurred in under developed regions of the world. Cancer is the second leading cause of mortality in the Caribbean, with an estimated number of 90,000 cancer related death reports. The Pan American Heath Organization (PAHO) define the Caribbean region as a group of 27 countries that vary in size, geography resources, and surveillance systems. 

The Caribbean Public Heath Agency (CARPHA) states that while it has acknowledged that nearly one half types of cancer are preventable and treatable, if detected early. Data analyzed shows that the highest cancer mortality rates are within the Caribbean. The top five causes of cancer deaths based on data received from the Pan American Heath Organization (PAHO)  in males are prostate, colorectal, lung, stomach and pancreas. While the top five causes of cancer related death in females are breast, cervix, uterine corpus, colorectal and ovary. 

Any donation that can be made would be accepted and greatly appreciated.
