H.E.R.O.C is New York State Incorporated and a 501©(3) organization. We support Cancer Awareness and the American Cancer Society. In celebration of the third year of our formation, we are embarking on our Inaugural Trip to Guyana departing on October 22nd. Our Team will participate in the following events in Georgetown.
- On October 26th, we will host a Look Good-Feel Better session with Dr. Latoya Gooding at the Oncology Center at the Georgetown Hospital. This will consist of a Power Point Presentation on Pre and Post Care, Nutrition, Wellness and a day of Hair Care, Manicures and Pedicures. Most importantly, a testimonial from a young Guyanese Cancer Patient currently being cared for in New York by us and her journey through stage 4 Breast Cancer. Each attendee will receive a gift bag with customized goodies for their well-being.
- An evening reception on October 27th with Patrons and Supporters where we will pledge our support to assist with educating the cancer patients and our continued support to Giving Hope Foundation in Guyana.
- On Friday, October 28th, we will participate in a candlelight vigil with Hope Guyana remembering the souls that have departed and the ones who remain in the battle against this disease.
