drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel
uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful

Trinidadian-born Allison Alexis,
founder of the Queens Cancer Walk,
herself, a cancer survivor, and champion
for others, honored women in her
community, and the many others lost to
the disease, and to COVID-19, during a
heartfelt candlelight vigil at the Inspire
NY Church Hall & Wellness Center,
on Sutphin Blvd., in South Jamaica,
Alexis, who also founded the Angels
of Hope Cancer Awareness Group, on
Oct. 15, told survivors, supporters and
elected officials, that due to the coronavirus
pandemic, she was unable to
host, what would have been her 8th
Annual Cancer walk in the borough, but
instead, was honored to commemorate
those who have passed on, at the first
candlelight vigil, after moving to the
area four years ago.
A courageous and compassionate
advocate, Alexis, who is a ten-year cancer
survivor, started the Queens Cancer
Walk in 2014, after she was diagnosed
with breast cancer in 2011, and felt she
must do more than bring about awareness
in her community, through the
march. As such, she has become a fierce
advocate for scores of cancer survivors,
and continues to provide counseling,
and social events, to help others cope.
Born in Port-of-Spain, Alexis, who
has received numerous citations for her
work, and who was showered with praise,
for her unwavering support, inspiration
and upliftment of woman in her community,
before opening the program
affixed everyone with a pink ribbon pin,
significant, to breast cancer awareness,
acknowledged in the month of October.
Survivors and supporters then joined
Alexis to light candles during the vigil
that included musical renditions dedicated
to those lost.
Assembly Member Khaleel Anderson
praised Alexis for uplifting and bringing
the community together. “Breast
cancer awareness is not only celebrated
in this month, but all year long. It is
important that we celebrate our victories
and maintain a positive attitude,
around something that is so painful.
This is what keeps us fighting said the
“Thanks for taking the time to come
and uplift and support Allison, and
to also uplift the other hundreds of
thousands of women. I hope you leave
renewed and invigorated, emotionally,
mentally, and being by their side. I want
to say thanks to the organization, and
Allison. Continue to fight,” said Anderson.
Cathleen Williams, director of community
engagement community partnership
division, said she was honored
to be representing Queens District
Attorney, Melinda Katz, noting that
“It’s important that we all join together
in love, harmony and understanding
and in compassion to support, lift up,
encourage, and pray for one another as
we go through struggles like this.”
“DA Katz wants you to know that
under her leadership and office, we
care for breast cancer survivors. It is
not only being the chief law enforcement
officer looking over one of the
most diverse boroughs in the world.
She is also connected and participates
in the community. It is not something
that can be overlooked. We participate
when it is Women’s History, Hispanic
History, African American Mmonth,
and acknowledge that those things are
important to her and Queens. She sends
her Llove and regards from the DA’s
office,” said Williams.

plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
nerves and provide them with the proper
nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding
