Now it almost all seems like a distant memory and yet the Conference is having resonating impact. We are already hearing from delegates who are returning to their home countries with stories of optimism and hope.
For example Dr. Shirley Jhagroo was able to attend from the Barbados team. Barbados has a very high mortality rate in breast cancer so it was good that she was able to attend. Shirley writes, "Thank you for inviting us to be part of the ISL (International Support Links), it certainly was a wonderful experience. I have returned to Barbados with such enthusiasm and determination to make things better for our women. I had a meeting with the members of the Breast Screening Program Committee yesterday, and could not contain myself as I was bursting with knowledge and ideas gained from the Conference to share with my committee, thank you for this opportunity."
