October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month around the globe, so we're getting ready for a lot of pink-themed products that will come out in support of the cause. Did you know that breast cancer is the second-most common cancer worldwide and the most common form of cancer that affects women, according to the World Cancer Research Fund? Years of research have shown that early detection programmes and treatment facilities greatly help in improving recovery results, yet these resources are still lacking especially in less developed countries. So aside from donating directly to breast cancer research and prevention organisations, you can help to spread awareness and help in your own way with these limited-edition items that support the cause.
1. PAZZION EDIRA espadrilles and PAZZION Café Pink Moon
Footwear brand PAZZION is celebrating breast cancer awareness in two ways. If you buy a pair of the PAZZION EDIRA espadrilles (SGD96) or the Pink Moon drink (SGD9) at the PAZZION Café, 30% of its nett proceeds will go towards the Singapore Breast Cancer Foundation for breast cancer research.
Where to buy: PAZZION is available online at www.pazzion.com and in-store at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Bugis Junction, Marina Bay Sands, Junction 8, Wisma Atria, Tampines Mall, Vivocity, JEM, Jewel and Changi Terminal 1.
