October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and with the holidays quickly approaching, it's the perfect time to shop for yourself and those you love while giving back.
Breast cancer, which is the most common type of cancer in women, is a life-threatening disease that affects women during their peak years of productivity, according to the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS).
PIDS also said that the Philippines has the lowest screening rate for breast and cervical cancer, which is one of the reasons why many institutions and brands are advocating for early detection and prevention through breast cancer awareness campaigns. These campaigns often include talks and activities, as well as promos and discounts to support the cause. Check them out below.
