It’s October, finally. While you might be excited about Halloween that’s happening on October 31, this month is also about breast cancer awareness. In Singapore, breast cancer makes up more than 25% of cancers diagnosed in women. While it is more common among women above 40, it doesn’t mean it cannot happen to younger women. Which is why it’s important to create awareness about this life-threatening disease even among young women.
There are a few foundations created for this purpose. The Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) is a non-profit organisation that conducts talks and events to promote regular screening for early detection. They also provide counselling and training activities to survivors and their family. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), on the other hand, aims to prevent and cure breast cancer through research.
While you can do your part by donating to these foundations and their great causes, you can also buy beauty products who are donating a part of their proceeds to those organisations this month. Here are six to buy.
