The Belize Cancer Society was formed in 1996 through the efforts of a brave Cancer educator and activist Juliet Orosco Soberanis. The mission of the Society is to establish, promote and further the awareness and treatment of all types of cancer in Belize, and to provide support to those affected and their families.
The founding members were: Juliet Orosco Soberanis(President) , Nina Reneau (Vice-President), Veronica Gonzalez (Treasurer), Higinia Leslie (Secretary), Anthony Soberanis, Kimberley Soberanis Ellis, Araceli Moguel RN., Loretta Haylock RN, Mariega Magga M.D., Karen Skeen-Vellos.
The Belize Cancer Society functions within the parameters of Articles of Association and Memorandum of Association of Company’s Act, Chapter 206 of the Laws of Belize.
Under the stewardship of key persons including Mrs. Higinia Leslie and Mrs. Cathy Esquivel, land was acquired and the Juliet Soberanis Cancer Center was constructed and is the headquarters for the Belize Cancer Society.
