Before October gonna to end, i gonna to do this post coz October is also internationally known as Breast Cancer Month.

The Pink Ribbon is the symbol of support for the many women who have been affected by breast cancer globally. The Pink Ribbon is the official trademark of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The aim of Pink Ribbon International is to create a supportive community worldwide and to inform patients, specialist, families and friends about Pink Ribbon and Breast Cancer.
How to participate and help others to raise the pink ribbon's fund?
You can look for those retail shops participate in Pink Ribbon Day by selling the Pink Ribbon merchandise , buying pink & making a donation.
The funds you raise through Pink Ribbon Day will enable The Cancer Council to:

* Fund breast cancer research.
* Help those affected by breast cancer right now, by offering support services to
help them and their family through their cancer diagnosis and treatment.

With your help, together we can change the lives of women affected by breast cancer.

Dear all, please kindly do breast elf examination on monthly basis. If you are menstruating, BSE should be performed between the 7th and 10th day after the start of your period.

Warning signs to look for during examination:-
  • Lump in the breast or armpit
  • Abnormal changes in shape or size of breast
  • Abnormal dimpling or puckering of the skin of the breast
