“For the fourth consecutive year, Boots Thailand has financially supported patients with cancer at the National Cancer Institute and also provided medical equipment and devices through several fundraising activities. We successfully raised more than Bt1 million through the KMs4Cancer Run, Charity Sales and the “No Plastic Day” campaign over the period December 4 to June 30. The latest activity, the ‘Beauty Against Cancer’ workshop, was organised to boost the resolve and attitudes of patients with cancer, helping them feel good about themselves in their everyday lives. This coincided with Boots presenting a donation of Bt440,000 to the National Cancer Institute,” said Mike Wanliss, managing director of Boots Retail (Thailand).
Weerawut Imsamran, director of the National Cancer Institute, expressed appreciation to Boots Retail Thailand for helping increase awareness of cancer care issues by continuously raising funds for the National Cancer Institute. “This allows us to purchase medical equipment to treat cancer patients, as well as organize feel good activities to educate our staff on how to provide the best care, treat and understand cancer patients, allowing them to continue their normal routines and to live happily with others in society,” Weerawut said.
