Locals Making Strides Against Breast Cancer for Annual Walk

She said one of the reasons for connecting with the Fiji Sun was to request the survivor's approval to include their breast cancer story on the Male Breast Cancer Coalition website. She said early detection is key, but a lot of people have told her they're too afraid to get a mammogram. "Not only of your friends, but the entire community to come out and support you".

The money raised stays in the community, benefiting the RMH Foundation to make mammograms more affordable.
