Fiji Cancer Society’s media officer, Grace Tuvakasiga says they will involve men in their discussions this month.
This as FCS currently has 3 registered breast cancer cases in men.
Tuvakasiga says in this month they will carry out awareness programs in different communities on the types of cancer affecting people.
“What we trying to do is when we go out for awareness talks we include the men breast and the signs and symptoms of men breast cancer and that’s how we relate the message to all the men out there.”
The funds that will be collected from this month-long awareness will be used for cancer patients and their travelling expenses.
