Zonta Club of New Providence aids breast cancer patients

The Zonta of New Providence, Bahamas, raised US$12,500 through its Save-a-Life campaign to provide Bahamian women diagnosed with breast cancer with port-a-caths (ports) and needles, which are critical for their cancer treatment. The project also serves to mitigate the risks for financially-challenged cancer patients.

Now in its second year, the Save-a-Life campaign aims to ensure that women do not have to choose between providing for their families and getting life-saving cancer treatment. For the club, having women die because they do not have the necessities to win their battle with cancer is unacceptable.

The club seeks to empower women through health and education, which involves preventative measures and projects like this that help lessen the burden of accessing treatment. The club is happy to continue its commitment to saving lives.
