Cancer Society of The Bahamas was established in 1976 as a non-profit
organization, to educate the public about the various types of cancers
and related treatments, as well as the prevention of cancer.
Additionally, the Association raises funds on an annual basis to support
its Cancer Caring Centre and to assist with costs associated with the
educational, screening and medical related programmes.
The Cancer Caring Centre acts as a “home away from home” for persons
needing treatment, particularly residents from the Family Islands. The
Cancer Society of the Bahamas continues to stay committed to its mission
that “Cancer Awareness, Education, Prevention, Research, Advocacy, Care
and Cure of cancer is purposed to serve cancer patients, survivors and
their families and persons at risk across The Bahamas”.
The Cancer Society has nine Family Island branches on Abaco, Central
Andros, South Andros, North Andros, Cat Island, San Salvador, Eleuthera,
Exuma, and Freeport Grand Bahama. For more information please visit
