PRESS RELEASE

KIWANIS WORLDWIDE PRAYER WEEK FOCUSES ON PAEDRIATRIC CANCER 

The Kiwanis Club of New Kingston (KCNK) kicked off its Prayer Week with a Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, May 07, 2016 at the Stella Maris Pastoral Centre. The occasion was used to honor two medical professionals who together have given in excess of fifty years of service to the medical field and in particular working with children suffering from cancer.   The honorees were Dr. Michelle-Ann Richards Dawson, SMO Bustamante Hospital for Children and Dr. Sharon McLean Salmon, Pediatrics Oncologist, Bustamante Hospital for Children.    A special donation was also made to Angel's of Love for their unwavering support in the area of childhood cancer.
The tradition of Prayer Week began in 1980 and provides Kiwanis clubs with the opportunity to promote spiritual and religious activities both within the clubs and throughout the community. It also gives them the opportunity to recognize individuals for outstanding contributions to the welfare of the community.  Each year clubs focus on different areas of community life and this year the President of the KCNK, Mrs. Audrey Brown has chosen to  focus on paedriatric oncology because she is passionate about improving health and is committed to helping children with cancer..   The decision was also the outcome of extensive research  to determine how best KCNK  could assist in improving the comfort of parents and their sick children.   While they  are unable to singlehandedly provide for the ideal investment in research and treatment to impact positively on the survival rate, it is hoped that their fundraising activities will generate the awareness  necessary to spur wider support.
