WT Media company donates to Cancer Society
A local production company, WT Media, based out of Le Sanalele Complex, has donated $10,000 to the Samoa Cancer Society this week.
General Manger Rudy Bartley said the donation is to show appreciation for the efforts of the Cancer Society.
"We are happy to support Samoa Cancer Society because they are very active in their cancer awareness messaging and programmes as another step forward in keeping our people healthy and in good mental and physical well being," he said.
Mr. Bartley added that the Cancer Society has an outstanding way with their programmes.
"Cancer Society has for many years been at the forefront of some very effective marketing campaigns, like Pinktober, and we as an advertising company see that they are just doing a great job in Cancer awareness but also thinking out of the box in their marketing campaigns."
Bartley says the combination has helped boost public knowledge of Cancer screenings and enabled people to seek medical treatments when they know or suspect they have cancer.
"This saves lives, with early treatments and helps others to cope with having cancer in its later stages. It also helps to continue their work helping people. It's not much but we hope it will do a lot of good for the people of Samoa."
Chief Executive Officer of the Samoa Cancer Society, Su'a John Ryan acknowledge with gratitude the gift given by WT Media.
"With sincere gratitude Rudy and WT Media, for the generous donation given at such a crucial time for Samoa Cancer Society to continue its services to the community, despite the threat of COVID-19 impacting local business."
The Samoa Cancer Society has an annual awareness campaign called 'Pinktober', which runs for the month of October, where they also fundraise and remember those who have lost their fight against cancer, and also for those who are still battling cancer.
