The donation will help the organisation raise awareness about the importance of early testing.
“NIVEA Men, the market leading skin care products for men, are proud to be associated with raising awareness of Prostate Cancer in Fiji. Prostate Cancer can be treated if detected early through vital testing which costs money. In helping to raise those vital funds, NIVEA Men has donated $3,000 for Prostate Cancer prevention in Fiji, and through the Golden Oldies Rugby Club, will help to continue in offering testing to as many men as possible.”
“NIVEA Men thanks our customers for their ongoing support in helping to prevent Prostate Cancer in Fiji” said Craig Magnusson, Export / Business Development Manager – Beiersdorf Australia Ltd.
The Suva Golden Oldies Rugby Club (SGORC) recently collaborated with the Ministry for Health & Medical Services and the Fiji Cancer Society and in partnership with Nivea for Men in August, which officially launched their NIVEA MEN’s PROMOTION for in-stores, in an effort to increase awareness of this deadly disease that afflicts older men and is now rated as one of the top killers of men in Fiji.
“If you’re 50 years old please get tested. If you have a family history of prostate cancer, we also recommend you to get tested at the age of 45 years old.”
“And we also show our appreciation for Nivea Men for the awareness and sponsorship shown here today,” said Mason Smith, President of the Suva Golden Oldies Rugby Club.
