Super J IGA continues to strengthen its relationship with the group and has donated a number of pink items (pouches, reusable bags, bracelets, bandanas) to the group which will be sold on Saturday. The funds raised will help the group with its various programmes for persons going through treatment.
In the last few months Faces of Cancer has seen a remarkable increase in persons volunteering and indicating support for the group. Stevie Theophane credits this to the Yoplait Walk for Cancer and the efforts of Super J IGA to bring attention to the cause.
Faces of Cancer is a very active Cancer Support group, focused on helping newly diagnosed patients, those in treatment, survivors and terminal patients, while creating awareness of breast cancer through education.
Some of the groups’ interventions include accompanying newly diagnosed patients to their doctor’s visit, providing comfort and teaching coping skills.
For patients undergoing treatment the group provides chemotherapy support and household support (house cleaning, grocery shopping and meals).
