THE Fiji Cancer Society (FCS) raised a total of $60,000 alone from morning tea initiatives across the country last year.
This was confirmed by FCS chief executive officer Belinda Chan who said last year’s efforts marked an increase of participation, with over 17 corporate, private, and community organisations taking part in raising awareness about cancer.
“Every year, the society through the months of August and September is gearing up for its signature awareness and fundraising campaign for PINKTOBER and MOVEMBER (October and November),” Ms Chan said.
She said universally, October or PINKTOBER was breast cancer awareness month and the official colour for breast cancer was pink.
