Helen Watson. Adéu!

Helen Watson, the great leader in the fight against cancer on Ibiza and Formentera

The president of the Association Ibiza and Formentera Against Cancer (IFCC), Helen Watson, left us on July 26, 2023, after a life dedicated to service – first to her fellow countrymen, and then to cancer patients on the Pityuses, who affectionately called her their ‘fairy godmother’. Born in Newcastle in 1951, Helen settled on Ibiza in 1971 and worked at the British Consulate on the island for 28 years, eventually occupying the position of consul, which earned her an honour from Queen Elizabeth II as a Member of the British Empire. In 2009, she became the president of the IFCC and waged a tireless fight to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families.
