PKF Malta employees marked Pink October by raising awareness on the risks and prevention of breast cancer in a fun and entertaining way.

Besides having all employees dressed with a touch of pink, information on breast cancer and how to prevent and detect it was shared during an office activity held recently. In addition, PKF Malta employees enjoyed a specially-made cake which had various fun and catchy messages on breast cancer checks and prevention.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in Malta, and the estimates are that one in 10 women are expected to suffer from the disease during their lifetime. According to the local Breast Screening Programme within the Primary Heath Care Department, around 300 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Malta each year.

The aim of breast screening is to find breast cancers early, when they are still too small to see or feel. For more information once can call the Screening Centre on 2122 7470/1 or send an email to breast.screening@gov.mt
