Families of cancer patients will soon be able to live closer to their loved ones as a support centre worth $40,000 will be built opposite the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) in Suva.

This project has been made possible through the Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) campaign which raised a total of $345,000 for children suffering from cancer.

WOWS chairman Matt Wilson said the project will make life easier for families of the patients as they will live close to the hospital and will be able to visit their loved ones at any point in time.

“We have allocated $40,000 to establish a support centre with Fiji Crippled Children’s Society to use part of their premises at the Hilton Centre in Brown Street, in Suva, for this new amenity," Wilson said.

"We want to give the best to the society and to our children who are going through difficulties."

“Our aim is to make it into a haven for the daily use of child cancer patients and family members. It will be beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished and well equipped."

Wilson says they will be appointing a manager soon and expects the centre to be operating within the next month or so.

The Wows Child Cancer Support is now operating, under the chairmanship of Dr Khalid Mohammed, from Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWM).

Dr Mohammed is a member of the Fiji Cancer Society with whom Wows is in partnership.
