The Fiji Cancer Society collected 188 blankets through their blanket drive so far.

The Society’s Program Manager, Darisha Datt says they have already distributed 34 blankets where 21 blankets were given out in Western Division, seven in the Northern Division and six in the Central Division.

135 blankets were collected in Suva and 53 in the Western Division.

Datt says during cancer treatment, many patients deal with constant pain brought on by chemotherapy and they are often left with chills and fever.

She says blankets are the best way to keep cancer patients warm during their cancer treatment.

Blankets can be dropped off at Fiji Cancer Society’s office opposite the CWM Maternity Unit at Waimanu Road in Suva. People can also contact them on 9986127 for more information.

People in the Western Division who want to donate blankets can contact Margie Erbsleben on 9962115.
