Breast Cancer Awareness Walk

My neighbours, friends and I happily woke up early today to take part in the AVON Walk Around the World for Breast Cancer at Lake Titiwangsa. This 3-km fun walk is part of a global series of Walk Around the World events, that is specifically designed to focus on raising awareness on breast cancer and to raise funds for the cause. PRIDE Foundation is the beneficiary of this event.

PRIDE Foundation (Pink Ribbon Deeds) is a charity body in Malaysia that aims to enhance awareness efforts and improve accessibility to treatment and care of breast cancer at all levels of society.

By being a part of this event, PRIDE is able to continue in its commitment to raise the awareness level on breast cancer among more Malaysians. PRIDE has pledged that all proceeds raised from this walk will go towards its Prostheses Bra fund.

This fund is specifically catering for women who have undergone mastectomy or radical lumpectomy. Breast cancer survivors or patients need the prostheses bras for health, self- esteem and aesthetic reasons. Usage of the prostheses bra will prevent future abnormalities and complications to spine, posture and movements to shoulders and arms.


I like the poster shown by this lady, who is one of the survivors of breast cancer that says, "Breast cancer is not a death sentence!"

You are welcome JC. You have a lovely blog.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
