[25 October 2019, Hillsborough, Carriacou] At their annual fundraising event, the Carriacou & Petite Martinique Cancer Society bestowed an award of appreciation to TALONS Lead Consultant Margaret Snagg, a cancer survivor, for pro bono work, hands-on participation and corporate sponsorship during Breast Cancer Awareness month.
TALONS provided media coverage, imaging and a multimedia presentation to the fundraising event to support education, awareness and public relations efforts. Snagg reflected on her own experience of losing both parents to cancer and encouraged everyone to get involved. "Not just persons in Grenada, and not just for breast cancer because there are so many forms--support your local cancer societies with actions, donations and resources. Don't limit yourself. Cancer doesn't."

Cancer Control 2019 examined cancer in 13 Caribbean states: Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.
The highest cancer mortality rates are observed in St Vincent & the Grenadines and Grenada, while Belize and Guyana have the lowest rates.
In most Caribbean countries in the study, cancer mortality is much higher in males than females, except in the Bahamas, Belize and Guyana where female cancer mortality is higher.
Among men, prostate cancer was the leading cause of cancer deaths in all countries. Lung cancer was the second or third leading cause of cancer deaths among men, with the exception of St Kitts and Nevis where it was the fourth ranked cancer.
