All of the members are Guyanese living in the United States.According to Welshman-Neblett, during a recent interview with this publication, the mission of HEROC is to be a support group to cancer patients in Guyana. Moreover, it was only recently that moves were made by the group to align itself with the recently founded Giving Hope Foundation which is headed by Dr. Latoya Gooding.The alignment was officially concretised at a reception held at CSR Computers at Pike Street, Kitty, Georgetown.The collaboration between the two organisations was encouraged by Dr. John Mitchell who formerly worked at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) in the Department of Oncology.Welshman-Neblett noted that Dr. Mitchell was able to observe the work of the group as he is currently caring for a stage-four breast cancer patient for whom the group is currently providing housing in New York.“He aligned us with Giving Hope because of the type of work we do. We don’t stop our work and we don’t only come alive in October, it is all year round,” assured Welshman-Neblett. She emphasised that it was in order to ensure that the group embraced its mission to be of support to cancer patients that it was established in the first place.According to Welshman-Neblett, the members of the group were previously affiliated with another group but because of concerns with accountability, a decision was made to introduce HEROC.“We wanted to make sure we were doing things right…” said Welshman-Neblett who noted that “for the last three years we spent in planning we got ourselves incorporated by the State of New York and are now a New York city Charity that pays taxes.”Over the course of planning, the group was able to spearhead a number of fundraising events including four major fundraisers that have become annual events in New York. These fundraisers have given the organisation the financial means to put its mission into action.This, according to Welshman-Neblett,Cheap Football Jerseys, has allowed the group to even plug some financial support into the American Cancer Society to contribute to its research on cancer.But according to Welshman-Neblett, the group could have opted to support just about any aspect of health care.
