There are numbers of moments that you are proud of our Caye Caulker community and this is one of them. This morning, 100 men, women and even children met at the airstrip at 6.30am to walk round the entire island to increase the awareness of the largest cause of death in Belize, Cancer.
The Caye Caulker Cancer Society has been formed as in recent years the predator has been on the alarming increase within our village community. If today is anything to measure it by, it appears that this highly worthy initiative is generating support and momentum that the nature of the beast requires!!
The Society serves to create awareness (to encourage those in the community to have regular tests to highlight the early presence of Cancer), funds (the much needed funds to support the members of our community that need financial assistance to fight their illness) and finally emotional support. All very much needed!
The walk this morning was an incredible show of community spirit as it was a who’s who walking the streets (even Patti Arceo – the PUP Standard Bearer had come over from San Pedro to show her support!). Our huge thanks to the members of the Caye Caulker Cancer Society – today showed that all of Caye Caulker is very much behind fighting Cancer!!
