The Story

Jamaica Reach to Recovery is a voluntary non-profit organization funded by public contributions and fund raising efforts. The organization was founded in 1977 by Dr. Denise Thwaites, who after being diagnosed with breast cancer recognized the need for peer support among women who were going through this experience.

Our organization is committed to working to improve the quality of life for women diagnosed with and/or survived breast cancer and their families, through a wide range of services.

Jamaica Reach to Recovery is built on the simple yet universal principle that "a woman who has lived through breast cancer and gives freely of her time to help another woman facing the same experience is a valuable source of support".

Members of the group benefit from sharing expertise in breast cancer support, as well as resources, connections, and experiences in a commitment to improve the quality of life of women diagnosed with breast cancer. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 5-7 pm at Webster Memorial Church Hall and via Zoom platform. A warm welcome awaits you all.

So join us and "let's continue to do more, until there is a cure".
