On Thurs. I attended a meeting with local women dedicated to serving victims of cancer here in Rocky Point, Sonora, MX I have been searching for a group other than the typical American Tourist and Real Estate agents. This successful group that has enabled hundreds of the poorest women to have cancer prescreening as well as assist in the payment of chemo therapy. I was happy to listen to the presentation while intently picking out a few words here and there. Basically because of the worldwide economic challenges the regular donations from the local businesses are gone. Fishing,Housing and tourism are the engine of this local economy. All are in a depressed state. In March of 2009 a mobile Cancer screening vehicle from Hermosillo will arrive. Allowing the most needy residents to be screened. In the past over 250 individuals completed the screenings. My understanding is the costs are aproximately $45.00 USD, all of these costs are going to be paid by the Womens volunteer Group. In the past years Business donations covered about 1/2. But this year all of the funds will have to be raised without that benefit. I have no doubt that these dedicated women will be successful, there is a fund raising event scheduled where by the group will take orders for an authentic mexican dinner to be prepared for a donation I will have the mininum cost soon. IF any of my readers are in Rocky Point, please contact me and I will be glad to take your order.
