Go Pink! and Join Festival Mall's Activities for Breast Cancer Awareness this October

On average, 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Although this is the most common type of cancer in women, there remain a lot of misconceptions about its symptoms and treatment to this day.

Let's Go Pink!
Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City advocates for raising breast cancer awareness and holds a month-long celebration of health, wellness, and fun this October. Go Pink! features various activities to help heighten awareness about breast cancer, its symptoms, diagnosis, prevention, and cure. Proceeds will be given to three partner organizations: I Can Serve Foundation, Stage Zero by Project Pink, and the Asian Hospital Charities, Inc.,  to help fund their activities for breast cancer patients.
