The Dominican Cancer League recently formed a partnership with a Spanish-owned supermarket chain, to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society-supported cervical cancer and awareness project Prevention as a Better Cure in the Dominican Republic. The funds raised by the patrons of the Bravo Supermercados chain will provide much needed resources for the cancer league’s educational and early detection services, and will help the organization diversify its revenue base. One of the towns that has benefited from this project is Boca Chica. In conjunction with Children’s International, educational and screening activities are taking place there in two health centers that are effectively reaching children and mothers alike. From November 2007 until April 2008, 720 women have been screened, 77 of whom were detected with preinvasive cervical conditions. More than 70 percent of the women who were evaluated have been provided some form of follow-up treatment. Dr. Natalia Frias, education director for the cancer league and an American Cancer Society fellow, credits her ability to secure this partnership – a first for her organization – to what she learned from her fellowship with the Society’s Pennsylvania Division.
