Lesa-gayle Wee Tom is more than a Jamaican beauty; by the age of five she had already mastered the art of performing and modeling in front of mass audiences. Now, after countless pageant titles, television and modeling appearances, a successful academic career and being named a humanitarian, Milan is undoubtedly taking the world by storm.

1. What is the name of your charity and how did you get involved in charity work?

- The name of my charity is "One Love Women and Children organization". I got involved in charity work at a very young age, my parents always instilled the importance of sharing. I started as a Brownie (girl scout) in my early childhood, then I became a member of the Kiwanis Club my freshman year at Immaculate Conception High School, but it wasn't until my 2nd year in college that I decided to chair my own charity.

2. Tell us a little more about the Miss Humanity Int'l Pageant that you will be participating in

- Miss Humanity International celebrates it's 2nd annual grand coronation this month in Barbados, however this is Jamaica's 1st year participating. The pageant promotes selflessness and humanity, it also enforces the specific obligations that comes with being a positive role model.

3. What will be your platform for this -pageant?

- My platform is "Woman and Children World Issues" . My goal is to continue raising awareness on issues that concern women and children in the world such as inequality, abuse, rape, human trafficking and cancer in attempt to find cures and decrease the annual rate level. I chose this platform because my life has been affected both directly and indirectly by these issues and I believe by sharing my story and volunteering my time, I can make a difference in someone's life.

4. Talk to us about some of the work you've done.

- I am an ambassador for "Friends for Education", together we've raised $625,000 in scholarship for the 8 yrs old girl that was reported raped a few weeks ago. We are strong advocates of educating our youths because we believe it's the right investment for a better Jamaica. In addition, I also volunteer at local prep and primary schools where I mentor students and teach physical education.

- In effort to raising awareness to Breast Cancer, I created a sub-division to my organization called "Mirror Mirror" for women who've lost their hair because of chemotherapy. This organization raises money to buy wigs and host beauty events for these women where they get their hair, make-up and a full day of pampering. I strongly believe every woman deserves to feel and look their best despite their circumstances.

5. Are sponsors (corporate) involved in your charity works?

- Yes, this year I teamed up Xtreme Brite Corporation and the Hon Usain Bolt donated a pair of his spikes for my charity auction. I'm very grateful to everyone who supports my organization.

6. What's next for you?

- Hopefully the prestigious title of Miss Humanity International 2012 ;)

Cancer Cleared Clinics, a Nevis LLC, announced today that it is waiting for approval to operate it's Breast Cancer Clinics in thirty countries. Cancer Cleared Clinics has a unique and tested combination of therapies that are more effective and less harmful to the body than the current methods of cancer treatment used in the United States. This treatment is not available in the United States.

Eugene Steele, cancer historian, said, "I have a personal war against cancer and those that prevent better treatments. The Standard American Diet is the major cause for the two largest killers: heart disease and cancer. Every person has cancer created in their bodies everyday. Our bodies are equipped with an immune system which attacks and destroys these cancer cells. When we eat a Standard American Diet we weaken the immune system and it cannot destroy the cancer cells. This can all be reversed and has been available for over 100 years."

The Cancer Cleared Clinics' method is to remove the protection the breast cancer cells have, and let the body destroy these cancer cells in seven days. Cancer Cleared Clinics offers a money back guarantee and a fixed fee of $3500. No other clinics in the world will make this offer. "There have been many developers of cancer therapies that have been blocked or ignored," stated Mr. Steele. "The United States lags behind many other countries in delivery of ground-breaking advances in quality medical care."

Steele adds, "There are more effective treatments for cancer, but because of the politics and restrictive laws in the United States, doctors can only make quiet suggestions to their patients because these doctors do not want to incur the wrath of the FDA and the medical establishment, and jeopardize their license to practice medicine."

Cancer Cleared Clinics is in the last phase of financing. Each Clinic costs $200,000 to establish. They have a new concept of cancer medical tourism. Each clinic will be located in a resort making the treatment a vacation. The treatment only require 45 minutes a day for seven consecutive days. The rest of the day the client is free to enjoy their vacation with their family. There is no chemotherapy, surgery or radiation.

Lesa-gayle Wee Tom is more than a Jamaican beauty; by the age of five she had already mastered the art of performing and modeling in front of mass audiences. Now, after countless pageant titles, television and modeling appearances, a successful academic career and being named a humanitarian, Milan is undoubtedly taking the world by storm.

1. What is the name of your charity and how did you get involved in charity work?

- The name of my charity is "One Love Women and Children organization". I got involved in charity work at a very young age, my parents always instilled the importance of sharing. I started as a Brownie (girl scout) in my early childhood, then I became a member of the Kiwanis Club my freshman year at Immaculate Conception High School, but it wasn't until my 2nd year in college that I decided to chair my own charity.

2. Tell us a little more about the Miss Humanity Int'l Pageant that you will be participating in

- Miss Humanity International celebrates it's 2nd annual grand coronation this month in Barbados, however this is Jamaica's 1st year participating. The pageant promotes selflessness and humanity, it also enforces the specific obligations that comes with being a positive role model.

3. What will be your platform for this -pageant?

- My platform is "Woman and Children World Issues" . My goal is to continue raising awareness on issues that concern women and children in the world such as inequality, abuse, rape, human trafficking and cancer in attempt to find cures and decrease the annual rate level. I chose this platform because my life has been affected both directly and indirectly by these issues and I believe by sharing my story and volunteering my time, I can make a difference in someone's life.

4. Talk to us about some of the work you've done.

- I am an ambassador for "Friends for Education", together we've raised $625,000 in scholarship for the 8 yrs old girl that was reported raped a few weeks ago. We are strong advocates of educating our youths because we believe it's the right investment for a better Jamaica. In addition, I also volunteer at local prep and primary schools where I mentor students and teach physical education.

- In effort to raising awareness to Breast Cancer, I created a sub-division to my organization called "Mirror Mirror" for women who've lost their hair because of chemotherapy. This organization raises money to buy wigs and host beauty events for these women where they get their hair, make-up and a full day of pampering. I strongly believe every woman deserves to feel and look their best despite their circumstances.

5. Are sponsors (corporate) involved in your charity works?

- Yes, this year I teamed up Xtreme Brite Corporation and the Hon Usain Bolt donated a pair of his spikes for my charity auction. I'm very grateful to everyone who supports my organization.

6. What's next for you?

- Hopefully the prestigious title of Miss Humanity International 2012 ;)

Cancer Cleared Clinics, a Nevis LLC, announced today that it is waiting for approval to operate it's Breast Cancer Clinics in thirty countries. Cancer Cleared Clinics has a unique and tested combination of therapies that are more effective and less harmful to the body than the current methods of cancer treatment used in the United States. This treatment is not available in the United States.

Eugene Steele, cancer historian, said, "I have a personal war against cancer and those that prevent better treatments. The Standard American Diet is the major cause for the two largest killers: heart disease and cancer. Every person has cancer created in their bodies everyday. Our bodies are equipped with an immune system which attacks and destroys these cancer cells. When we eat a Standard American Diet we weaken the immune system and it cannot destroy the cancer cells. This can all be reversed and has been available for over 100 years."

The Cancer Cleared Clinics' method is to remove the protection the breast cancer cells have, and let the body destroy these cancer cells in seven days. Cancer Cleared Clinics offers a money back guarantee and a fixed fee of $3500. No other clinics in the world will make this offer. "There have been many developers of cancer therapies that have been blocked or ignored," stated Mr. Steele. "The United States lags behind many other countries in delivery of ground-breaking advances in quality medical care."

Steele adds, "There are more effective treatments for cancer, but because of the politics and restrictive laws in the United States, doctors can only make quiet suggestions to their patients because these doctors do not want to incur the wrath of the FDA and the medical establishment, and jeopardize their license to practice medicine."

Cancer Cleared Clinics is in the last phase of financing. Each Clinic costs $200,000 to establish. They have a new concept of cancer medical tourism. Each clinic will be located in a resort making the treatment a vacation. The treatment only require 45 minutes a day for seven consecutive days. The rest of the day the client is free to enjoy their vacation with their family. There is no chemotherapy, surgery or radiation.

Member of Parliament for East Rural St. Andrew, Damion Crawford has advised constituents living along the Hope River bank in the Kintyre division, to  evacuate by 3 p.m. today.

"With the volume of water expected it is possible for Hope River to overflow its banks. I am therefore appealing to the residents to pack and be ready to leave by 3 p.m. today," said Crawford.

The warning comes as a result of Tropical Sandy which will begin to move across Jamaica from south to north on Wednesday, at which point the island will start experiencing hurricane conditions.

More evacuation details will be issued throughout the course of the day.

A hurricane warning continues for Jamaica as Tropical Storm Sandy maintains a path toward the island. Sandy is forecast to become a hurricane while approaching Jamaica tomorrow.

The Met Service says over the next 24-36 hours, rainfall is expected to increase significantly over Jamaica to produce flash floods and landslides at least through Thursday.

Winds are forecast to reach tropical storm strength by early Wednesday morning, increasing to hurricane force later in the day.

This means that the following dangerous effects of a hurricane are expected to affect Jamaica in 36 hours or less:

• Dangerously high water or a combination of dangerously high water and exceptionally high waves, even though winds expected may be less than hurricane force;

On this forecast track, the centre of Sandy will begin to move across Jamaica, from south to north, on Wednesday afternoon before heading towards eastern Cuba.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 km/h (50 mph), with higher gusts, and additional strengthening is expected during the next 24-48 hours.

The Met Service will release the next bulletin on Tropical Storm Sandy at 5:00 p.m. today.

Cancer Cleared Clinics, a Nevis LLC, announced today that it is waiting for approval to operate it's Breast Cancer Clinics in thirty countries. Cancer Cleared Clinics has a unique and tested combination of therapies that are more effective and less harmful to the body than the current methods of cancer treatment used in the United States. This treatment is not available in the United States.

Eugene Steele, cancer historian, said, "I have a personal war against cancer and those that prevent better treatments. The Standard American Diet is the major cause for the two largest killers: heart disease and cancer. Every person has cancer created in their bodies everyday. Our bodies are equipped with an immune system which attacks and destroys these cancer cells. When we eat a Standard American Diet we weaken the immune system and it cannot destroy the cancer cells. This can all be reversed and has been available for over 100 years."

The Cancer Cleared Clinics' method is to remove the protection the breast cancer cells have, and let the body destroy these cancer cells in seven days. Cancer Cleared Clinics offers a money back guarantee and a fixed fee of $3500. No other clinics in the world will make this offer. "There have been many developers of cancer therapies that have been blocked or ignored," stated Mr. Steele. "The United States lags behind many other countries in delivery of ground-breaking advances in quality medical care."

Steele adds, "There are more effective treatments for cancer, but because of the politics and restrictive laws in the United States, doctors can only make quiet suggestions to their patients because these doctors do not want to incur the wrath of the FDA and the medical establishment, and jeopardize their license to practice medicine."

Cancer Cleared Clinics is in the last phase of financing. Each Clinic costs $200,000 to establish. They have a new concept of cancer medical tourism. Each clinic will be located in a resort making the treatment a vacation. The treatment only require 45 minutes a day for seven consecutive days. The rest of the day the client is free to enjoy their vacation with their family. There is no chemotherapy, surgery or radiation.
