Fijian Holdings Limited (FHL) Group of Companies is taking an initiative in helping raise awareness on cancer by conducting screening sessions for its entire staff.

This was revealed by FHL chief executive officer Nouzab Fareed, while holding a morning tea with the Fiji Cancer Society in commemorating the Pinktober awareness campaign on Thursday.

Mr Fareed said from this week onwards, they would conduct screenings for all FHL staff for breast and prostate cancer.

“The message is very clear. Be aware and go for prevention by going for early screening,” he said.

Fiji Cancer Society acting president Philip Low said: “Our biggest inspiration are our survivors. Without them, we don’t know the truth of what the patients go through and help us become more aware.”

Mr Low said while fundraising was wonderful, raising awareness was more important than raising money.

Meanwhile, Mr Fareed also presented a cheque of $2500, including cash donations marking their partnership with the Fiji Cancer Society.
