I Share the Fight Against Breast Cancer #KGBC2015

09/09/2015

One in every 13 Filipino women have breast cancer and one in every female in the world will be diagnosed with it (there are males who get breast cancer too and is more fatal than women because it is rarely detected).   Honestly, the statistics doesn’t do anything to us unless we are directly affected or involved.

I saw Roco Nacino, a Filipino actor and a registered nurse, break down in tears while telling us his mother’s breast cancer story. We saw his pain and his love for his mom Linda Nacino, who herself battled against and survived the disease.

Roco and mommy Linda Nacino , together with Jennylyn Mercado, actress and Avon’s Intimate Apparel Ambassador,  share the fight against breast cancer and joins Avon 2015 Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer Campaign #KGBC201.   They are encouraging everyone to take part in this years effort to win the battle against this disease.

Mommy Linda, who has been cancer-free for 16 years, launched her “Piso Para sa Chemo” – a coin drive using empty water bottles which will benefit cancer patients at PGH Breast Care Center.

Jennylyn, Roco and Linda, togehter with Avon are also inviting everyone to join the Avon Walk and Run event against breast cancer that will happen on October 10, 2015 at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds.  The Philippine Cancer Society, Philippine General Hospital, GMA Network, SM Mall of Asia, SM Cares, Ford Philippines and United Health Group are supporting this cause as well.

Meanwhile Avon on the other hand, encourages everyone to purchase the Pink Ribbon Underwire Bra, Over Nature Lipstick and the Skin So Soft and White Collagen Protector Whitening Hand and Body Lotion .  Part of the proceeds for each purchase will go to the PGH Breast Care Center as well.

The program was held over a scrumptious lunch at Le Jardin where they served a light and tasty Duck Confit for starters, and a melt in your mouth Roast Chicken with Truffle Oil and sauce, and the Pink Ribbon Cake.

On a side note,  every female in the world is encouraged to do monthly self-breast examination , and mammogram once in every 5 years if you are aged 20-30 and by the age of menopausal, every year is recommended.  I wrote a post about the 12 Things You Want to Know About Breast Cancer here.

I share the fight against breast cancer by wearing the Avon Fashions Pink Ribbon Underwire Bra, the Orchid Fantasy Over Nature Lipstick and the Skin So Soft & White Collagen Protector Whitening Hand and Body Lotion, this is definitely beauty with a purpose.
