IOM Anti Cancer Association: World Cancer Day Event

Our first ever event to acknowledge world cancer day took place yesterday at The Comis Hotel. Among our attendees were representatives from Island based cancer charities and it was also a great pleasure to welcome Lady Lorimer, Patron of the Association.  The theme of the event was a “positive spotlight on cancer” and our 5 Guest Speakers certainly left us all with a great deal of hope for the future!

  • Malcolm Clague on behalf of Heather Christian, Cancer Patient & Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation Ambassador
