THE Fiji Cancer Society (FCS) is working closely with the oncology unit, in an attempt to work with communities and families in taking on the care of their loved ones.

This was highlighted by FCS president Philip Low while speaking at the Bushells Fiji’s Biggest Morning Tea (BFBMT) organised by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Suva on Wednesday.

Mr Low said they were also in the process of developing a social network centre with the help of their survivor group.

“The survivor group has brought the society to the forefront of the conversation, and has helped with our cancer advocacy work,” Mr Low said.

“We would also like to remember those who have passed on and have boldly shared their story to help us in the fight against cancer.

“The society has very deep respect, and has the deepest gratitude towards them and their families as they have been a great help, throughout our journey together and we will continue to have those fond feelings for them into the future.”

He added last year’s morning tea initiatives raised a total of $60,000.

Meanwhile, PwC senior partner Nitin Gandhi said it was a privilege and an honour to host such a symbolic event which helped those in need.
