Avon Philippines continues its long-time efforts to promote breast cancer awareness in the country by holding various initiatives and events in line with its crusade this October.

Marchbanks said she became interested in spreading breast cancer awareness when her mother's best friend was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. This Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2018, here's How To Check Your Breasts For Lumps! "We want to find a cure so that our kids and our grandchildren never have to hear those words, have you have breast cancer". "We trust that our contributions have a part in helping both expanding awareness, and helping towards early detection". "I don't need a mammogram.' Yes, you do", Pigue said.

Lilly adds that she has personally had family members suffer from breast cancer. The bagels are shaped in the form of the iconic pink ribbon symbolizing breast cancer awareness.

Now in the third year, the volunteer-led Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative raises funds to increase breast health education, financially assist with breast cancer screenings, fund cancer patient navigation programs, and offer support to breast cancer survivors and families.

"The Zeta foundation gives back to Zetas across the nation that helps us put on events like this", she said.

Breast cancer death rates have decreased almost 40 percent since 1990 as a result of screenings and better treatment, according to the American College of Radiology. For those women considered at high risk for breast cancer, it's important to learn about early testing, possibly beginning in one's 30s. "A new thing we did this year is host a cycling class to raise money, and I would have to say I am most excited about that".

"I got the plates to honor her originally so it's just nice to have her here to see it all come together and kind of why, she's the why behind it for me", Varona said.
