Declaring “there is hardly a family in The Bahamas that has not been touched by cancer,” Commonwealth Bank revealed today it donated $50,000 to the Cancer Society of The Bahamas as part of its ongoing $500,000, 10-year pledge.

It was the second installment in what will be the single largest contribution to a nongovernment organization by the all-Bahamian-owned and operated financial institution. Funds will be used by the Cancer Caring Centre, a home away from home for those undergoing treatment. Two years ago, the Centre announced it had embarked on a drive to raise $3 million to build a desperately-needed residential expansion that will allow it to house more patients from Family Islands and provide more daytime services, including emotional, nutritional and other support for patients and their families from Nassau.
