In an effort to bring smiles to childhood cancer survivors, Faces of Cancer St. Lucia have organized a Tea Party and Easter Egg Hunt, for those affected by cancer.. This event is a free event for all St. Lucian kids who are or have been suffering with cancer with no age limits. The event will be held in the friendly and peaceful atmosphere of the serenity Park in San Souci on Easter Monday, April 17th 2017. It is our hope that our community will help support this important event as our kids need to know that the public do support them, want to make them happy and help them enjoy each and every day of their precious live while they go through their battle, and not feel sorry for them and keep them shut in. In St. Lucia we have many kids who have lost parents and loved ones to cancer, many of whom internalize their loss and pain. This event hopefully will bring them together and help them to realize they are not alone and although they have lost those precious to them, they can help bring smiles to those little ones going through their journey. There will be a number of games which the kids can play together and enjoy wonderful prizes, while the adults enjoy and converse with survivors. This event is held yearly and is in keeping with our mission of lessening the cancer burden on our community, as the burden is not only financial, but psychological and emotional as well. When one is diagnosed with cancer the entire family as well as the extended families are also affected, and such activities go a long way in relieving some of the stress associated with coping. According to the President of Faces of Cancer St. Lucia Mrs. Dorothy Skeete– Phillip. This is our 4th year hosting this event and we feel we have accomplished our mission having heard from the mother of a brain cancer survivor how her daughter looked forward to being at the event every year and the last time her daughter went out before her passing was our Easter egg hunt, and she would lay on her bed recounting the fun she had at the event. This alone gives us the drive to continue this event.
