#RethinkPink – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I’m proud to support The Estée Lauder Companies’ #RethinkPink Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. The campaign started in 1992, and aims to get fellow Singaporean women to take charge of their own breast health.

Did you know, breast cancer affects 1 in 4 of all cancers worldwide, making it the most common cancer among women? It is therefore encouraged for women to go for regular screening (i.e. Self-Examination, Clinical Breast Examination, Mammography). Early detection offers more treatment options and a better chance of survival and recovery. Being physically active, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a diet that is rich in fruits, vegetable and whole grains, limiting alcohol intake, and breastfeeding your children, are some of the ways you can protect yourself against breast cancer.

To aid breast cancer research, brands like Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Estée Lauder, La Mer, and Origins are donating part of the proceeds on an exclusive range of products. Visit rethinkpink.sg to find out more information on how you can create a breast cancer-free world.

If you know of someone who requires support, or if you have general enquiries about breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Foundation runs a free helpline at 63560123, they also have schemes and programmes dedicated to providing sponsorship for prosthesis and bras for lower-income women, wigs for women diagnosed with breast cancer, and counselling sessions for survivors and patients.
