The Hexagon Group on Wednesday organised its first Pinktober morning tea at the Hexagon International Hotel at Matintar in Nadi.

Hexagon Group chairperson Hafiz Khan said the initiative was the group’s contribution to the nation’s fight against cancer and they now hoped to have it as a yearly event.

“As a matured group we need to give back to society and raise awareness,” Mr Khan said.

He said cancer affected a lot of people and was a concerning issue.

“We are lucky to have people who are willing to donate in order to save a life,” he said.

“Each one of us has had a friend, relative, partner that have been cancer patients, they have suffered something in this respect and we can relate to it personally and individually.

“I know that the concentration is on women with cancer, but I’m quite amazed to have recently found that there is breast cancer in men as well which a serious concern is.

“We are lucky we live in a country that cares for each other not because we are sick but our upbringing was always that way.”

He added the proceeds from the morning tea would go towards the cancer society or anyone who was suffering from the cancer and needed financial assistance.
