Councillor launches initiative to help cancer patients


    Councillor for Reform/Manahambre Chris Hosein has launched an initiative to help breast cancer patients in his district with ground transport to and from their chemotherapy sessions.

    He is hoping the Government will take a similar approach on a national level.

    Mr. Hosein says after three months, the programme will be assessed and the service may be offered to all cancer patients in the district.

    Persons are volunteering their time and effort towards the initiative, since it not currently funded.

    However, the Councillor says he will raise funds in the near future to sustain and expand the programme.
