MABS Opens New Cancer Centre0 Replies
MABS Mar Menor Cancer Support Group opened the doors of their new Cancer Centre on Wednesday 26th February. The opening was attended by Volunteers, Patients and Sponsors. The ribbon was cut by Maria Angeles Martinez, Principal of the Official School of Languages in San Javier, assisted by Jacqui Phillips MBE President of MABS and Janet Bell Area Co-Ordinator for MABS Mar Menor. It was through Janet mentioning to Maria that MABS was looking for a bungalow for their Cancer Centre that the premises were found. The purpose of the Centre which is open 10a.m. - 2p.m. Monday - Friday is to provide a place for anyone affected by Cancer to drop in for information, a coffee and chat, or just a shoulder to cry on. It also provides a treatment room for lymphatic drainage, and a room for Counselling or Complimentary Therapies. On the third Friday of every month there is a Share & Care group at 11a.m. Anyone affected by cancer or bereaved is welcome to go along for an informal talk to MABS Volunteers and other people in the same situation. The next meeting is on friday 21st march. Contact Anne, Share & Care Co-Ordinator on 693 795 247 for further information. MABS is completely self funded and relies entirely on donations, sponsorship, and fundraising to pay for all the services they provide. The Centre is situated on the main road between San Javier and Santiago de la Ribera, on the corner of Avenida Mar Menor and Calle Cabo de Cresus. Volunteers are always required to continue the support offered by MABS so if you have a few hours a week to spare and would like to help contact Sylvia, Volunteer Co-ordinator on 634 353 575. Cancer does not discrimanate and neither does MABS. We help anyone of any nationality affected by Cancer. 24 hour Helpline 693 275 779. Cancer Centre 634 328 401 10a.m. - 2p.m. Monday - Friday.
