The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) has received $100,000 from a long-time philanthropist and cancer survivor, Kym Rapier.

Recognizing the many challenges that cancer patients across the U.S. Virgin Islands experience when faced with such a devastating diagnosis, Kym Rapier recently committed this donation to Cancer Support Virgin Islands Fund, an organization dedicated to helping patients get the care they need to fight their battle with cancer.
