RBC continues its fight against paediatric cancer
in the Caribbean through a new partnership with
The T&T Cancer Society (TTCS).
The bank signed a memorandum of understanding
with the non-profit organisation last Thursday that
will see the TTCS administering the RBC/RBTT
Caribbean Children s Cancer Fund.
Suresh Sookoo, CEO, Caribbean Banking, RBC,
presented a cheque in the amount of $5 million to
Dr George Laquis of the TTCS. A release from RBC
said this represents RBC s fifth and final commitment
of $1.2 million to the fund and $3.7 million which
represents the proceeds of various employee fund-
raising activities and generous donations from the
Fund s well-wishers.
The fund was established in 2009 to assist cancer
patients, who are under 16, in any region in the
Caribbean where RBC and RBTT operate. Since its
inception RBC has committed $1.2 million annually
to the fund, which is accessible to children in 18
countries in the Caribbean.
Over the years the fund has made treatment possible
for 35 children from Grenada, Jamaica, the Bahamas,
Dominica and T&T, and 78 pathology tests have been
funded to aid in diagnoses.
For more than 40 years, the TTCS has worked to
increase the public s awareness and knowledge about
cancer and championed the need for early detection
and preventative measures to reduce the incidence
of cancer through education and advocacy.
Sookoo believes this partnership will be vital to
providing the kind of quality care so many children
throughout the Caribbean need.
"Cancer is the number one killer disease among
children, surpassing that of asthma, diabetes and
paediatric Aids combined. While some forms of
childhood cancer have proven to be resistant to treat-
ment, approximately 75 per cent of the children diag-
nosed with cancer can be cured," Sookoo said.
"However, diagnosis often comes too late after the
cancer is at an advanced stage. We are hoping that
with this partnership with the TTCS we can provide
more opportunities for early diagnosis and treatment
and help save the lives of children throughout the
Chairman Emeritus of the Cancer Society, Dr
George Laquis agrees that this partnership is imper-
ative, "I have continuously reiterated the call for the
establishment of a National and Regional Cancer
Control Programme to comprehensively tackle this
disease. Working together with RBC/RBTT we can
finally have a holistic approach to childhood cancers
which includes not only early detection and treatment
but promoting lifestyle changes and providing psy-
chological support for children and their families."
"The reality throughout the Caribbean is that par-
ents find themselves financially unprepared to deal
with their child being diagnosed with cancer. As a
result, they are unable to obtain the appropriate med-
ical attention required due to cost."
He is urging parents and or guardians of children
under 16 who have been diagnosed and reside in
countries where RBC/RBTT operate to apply online
Chairman of the society Dr Jacqueline Sabga also
expressed her gratitude: "We sincerely thank
RBC/RBTT for placing their confidence in the TTCS.
We are both privileged and honoured to be the admin-
istrator of the Caribbean Children s Cancer Fund.
This initiative will not only help to save the lives of
children in our region, it will also provide a glimmer
of hope for their parents as diagnosis and treatment
can now become a reality."
