Lions donate to help Brac chemotherapy patients

| 19/07/2013

(CNS): The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens have given the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) with funds to cover the cost of three pumps for chemotherapy treatment and for the training of two nurses in Cayman Brac to administer chemotherapy. “Currently, chemotherapy patients in Cayman Brac must travel to George Town for their treatments,” said Lizzette Yearwood, Chief Executive Officer of the HSA. “Many times they are alone and unwell after their treatment and must travel back to Cayman Brac. This donation will help allow these treatments to take place in Cayman Brac, eliminating additional travel for the chemotherapy patients.” (Left: Elva Smith presents donation to chemotherapy nurse RN Cyndy Ebanks and Lizzette Yearwood)

Presenting the cheques last month, LCTG President Elva Smith said, “On behalf of the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens, it is with great pleasure that I present these two cheques to the Health Services Authority. This donation will help fulfill a need, benefiting both patients and the community."
