    History

    The Society had it's beginnings back in 1982 when Mrs. Hilma McField (a cancer patient) formed "Women Helping Women". In 1986, Alister (Alex) Alexander (another cancer patient) was interested in forming a cancer support group. He approached Mrs. McField and they agreed to merge the two groups. In March 1988, we officially became the Cayman Islands Cancer Society, a voluntary organization established to help cancer patients and their families/supporters.

    The Society has come a long way since it's early beginnings and changed to meet the needs of the community we are here to serve. In 1995 we were incorporated as a charity in the Cayman Islands. In 2015 we will celebrate 20 years of meeting the unmet needs of our community and with your continued support we'll be here for 20 more years!  Will you continue to help us, help others?
