Cancer check vouchers available

The Cayman Islands Cancer Society
is giving away vouchers for free Pap smears throughout the year at its office
next to the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town from 8.30am to 4.30pm, said
Camila Muniz Ferreira, the Cancer Society’s project coordinator.

Doctors from several practices gave
talks last month to raise awareness of gynaecological cancers, including Howard
Deosaran from TrinCay Medical Services, Barry Richter from Cayman Clinic, and
Darley Solomon.

Doctors Richter and Deosaran
donated the vouchers to the Cancer Society for women with no/limited health
insurance. Both doctors emphasised the importance of women having exams
performed on a regular basis.

“The Cancer Society would like to
express its sincerest gratitude to Dr. Richter, Dr. Deosaran and all the
doctors who participate in our cervical cancer screening programme year after
year by donating vouchers and to our volunteers for their immeasurable
contribution to the success of our programmes,” said Ms Muniz Ferreira.
