Today I have one very important topic I'd like to write about here on my blog...
October is the breast cancer awareness month, so I decided to get involved and promote Glamulet's campaign in prevention of breast cancer.
Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever before. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease. We’re going to change that. By doing whatever it takes, however we can, working tirelessly every day.
We’re bringing together the brightest minds, the boldest fundraisers and the most determined campaigners. And we need you to join us.
Because if we all act now, by 2050, we believe everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
When I was a child, my Mum's friend died of breast cancer, I still remember her struggle with this illness and two young boys she left behind her...
Now, my acquanitance and my colleague from work both got diagnosed with breast cancer and they're under 35 years of age. I see a fear and worries in their eyes and I feel helpless...I would like to hug them and make it all go away! Unfortunately, I don't have super powers, but I can give my small conribution to support their fight, that is also every woman's fight.
Breast cancer awareness month is a yearly health campaign to increase awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for research purposes. Glamulet's social responsibility is to raise funds for charities for breast cancer.
