Bluesky continues to support Samoa Cancer Society with driving awareness of early detection to save lives. 

And with Pinktober over, a review of support from the community has resulted in a massive contribution to Samoa Cancer Society.  

And with Bluesky’s final Pinktober participation of $3,500, this contribution has gone up to $50,000. 

“This cheque has taken the total amount for Pinktober to over $50, 000,” said Shelly Burich, C.E.O. of Samoa Cancer Society. 

“We’re pleased with the results of Pinktober and even more pleased with the support we saw from the community and businesses in the private sector,” said Alex Abraham Country Manager of Bluesky. 

The challenge still remains for Samoa Cancer Society with limited resources and support available for cancer patients locally. 

With no hospice and palliative care available to cancer patients in stages 3 and 4, the contribution made will help supply resources and sustain plans to improve this. 

However Samoa Cancer’s Early Detection message is still crucial to save lives in Samoa. 

Plans are now underway to train hospitals in Palliative care and much more.

 “We’d like to say thanks to Samoa Cancer Society for letting us be a part of bringing this campaign to life. And a very special thank you to all our dear customers for contributing and participating in our Pinktober promotions,” said Mr. Abraham.

“Bluesky will continue to support Samoa Cancer Society for the remainder of the year and right through 2018. We’re here to help Samoa Cancer Society progress with achieving results to give more support to cancer fighters.”
