BTVI Donates to Breast Cancer Support Group
The Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group recently got a helping hand from The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI) in the fight against breast cancer. BTVI’s Manager and Consultant, Dr. Iva Dahl, made a cheque presentation to the group’s president, Andrea Sweeting, after a successful event dubbed, ‘Pink Wednesday.’
Coordinated by the Student Affairs Department, the community service event brought awareness to the prevalence of breast cancer, early detection and the battle against the deadly disease. Dr. Dahl noted that it was all a part of the effort to educate people about the disease. Ms. Sweeting expressed gratitude for the assistance, adding that BTVI is one of the organizations which go “above and beyond” to assist the non-charitable group for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
