Public learn about cancer

Almost 60 people attended a Cayman
Islands Cancer Society presentation about gastrointestinal cancer last week.

Four doctors and dentists gave
presentations at the Elmslie
Church Hall in George Town, including one by Dr. Bob Kostich
and Dr. Bert Thacker from Smile Dental Clinic on oral cancers.

Dr. Komal Lawrence from Chrissie
Tomlinson Memorial Hospital presented on oesophageal and gastric
cancers, while Dr. Yaron Rado, also from Chrissie Tomlinson, presented on
virtual versus traditional colonoscopies

The Cancer Society raffled three virtual
colonoscopy vouchers, donated by Dr. Rado and Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital
and a voucher for a comprehensive examination and cleaning from Pure Healthcare.

The Society also handed out oral
cancer screening vouchers, 30 of which were donated by Smile Dental Clinic, and
one donated by Cayman Dental Services, as well as H. Pylori Testing vouchers
and Faecal Occult Blood Test kits.

There were also consolation prizes,
including beauty kits, CICS goodie bags and photo holders.
