Cayman Islands Cancer Society
The Cayman Islands Cancer Society (CICS) is a non-profit charitable organisation, which was established in 1995. The CICS relies exclusively on special fundraising efforts and donations from the community. The CICS uses the funds it receives to help the community in several ways, but most prevalently through cancer awareness programmes and direct financial assistance to patients who have been diagnosed with cancer.
In addition to direct financial assistance, the CICS helps provide patients with access to health care equipment (wheelchairs/walkers), prosthetics and provides counselling and on-going support services to patients and their families. Assistance from the CICS is available to anyone living in the Cayman Islands and, as an independent organisation, all monies raised in Cayman stay in Cayman to benefit our community.
MOvember (the month formerly known as November) is an annual charity event held during November with the aim of creating awareness and raising money for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Change the face of men's health by supporting MOvember. Guys in the Cayman Islands pay a registration fee, which gets them a specially designed (and much sought after) MO T-shirt, and the opportunity to compete for the coveted prize of CAY-MAN of MOVEMBER. On the 1st of Movember, contestants start clean-shaven, and have the month to grow their MO. To raise money for the cause they approach family, friends and co-workers who pledge to sponsor them some cash for growing their ‘tache. MO Sistas can also show their support by buying a T-shirt – we have special ladies sizes too (aren’t we caring!)
Whether you can grow a MO or not, you can support the cause by clicking and donating here: http://movember.ky. Those who are participating can also sign up on this page and pay the registration fee online or drop by the CICS office.
