Losing a Child to Cancer is never a an easy thing for anyone or any Family to go through.
And this is exactly what 63 -Year old-Volaivuna Sigasiganavanua of Tailevu had to go through, after her grand-son lost his battle with Cancer last week.
She was part of the 2019 Launch of the Shave or Save Campaign by WOWS Kids Fiji held in Suva today.
It was also officially announced that Opposition Member of Parliament- Lenora Qereqeretabua will champion this year’s Campaign.
Having been diagnosed with Acute monoblastic leukemia last year – the late 10 year-old Aakariva Sigasiganavanua battled his illness till the end under the care of his devoted and loving Grandmother.
Akariva had always been an energetic boy all his life and hated missing school at all and had always aspired to be an Accountant like his uncle.
She thanked the dedication and support of the WOWS Kids for providing the much needed assistance for families like her especially with cost of transportation from their home in Tailevu to the hospital.
It was an emotional moment for opposition member of Parliament-Lenora Qereqeretabua as she spoke to the families today and she hopes she can do all she can to raise funds for the Campaign in order to create Awareness in Fiji and the Pacific.
About 65 children battling Cancer are been taken care of by the Walk on Walk Strong Kids Fiji.
