A Little History

Moira and husband Jim

FACT started in 2014. The founder is Moira Dixon, who herself has been diagnosed with breast cancer and happily survived. Moira appealed on Facebook for people to help others with cancer, and the response was amazing. The first was at the Cozy Cafe, where Daph (now a FACT member) served "fabulous cakes" made by her husband, Kenny! While everyone was willing to provide help, it was obvious that FACT needed to raise funds if it was to be effective. The first fund raiser was help at Palm's Sports Bar in San Eugenio, and this has now become an annual event every June. In October 2018 FACT took over the venue Show Time in Tenerife Sur for a weekend. Each evening was a show with entertainers and very special contributions from FACT. On the Sunday the FACT Tipsy Tappers tap dance troupe wowed the audience, and both nights the FACT Ladies Full Monty team performed to "This is me". A video of the evening is available from FACT.
