GasanMamo Insurance, the leading insurer of health, travel, home, car and boat insurance has joined the movement to help fight breast cancer by taking part in the activities of the Pink October campaign. The Pink October campaign is a philanthropic initiative aimed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. As part of the various activities undertaken during the month of October, GasanMamo organised a dress down day for its entire staff to generate the much needed funds needed for this good cause.
Breast Cancer Most Common Form in Malta
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer and the leading cancer death in women above the age of 30 in Malta. If detected in the early stages, it can be treated successfully and it is therefore very important for woman to begin regular self-breast examinations in their early twenties. This way, women can familiarise themselves with their breasts and will be able to detect any unusual lumps that might develop over time.
Managing Director States Aim to Support Women
“The aim of the campaign is to help and support women worldwide, who have had or may have breast cancer. As a company, we believe strongly that awareness is key, and that it’s the first step towards making informed choices,” said Julian Mamo, Managing Director at GasanMamo Insurance.
Collection of Funds
The funds that are collected through the various activities including funds collected by insurance company, GasanMamo Insurance during their dress down day will be used for the purchasing of medical equipment that will facilitate breast cancer treatment. The medical equipment will also be used to take x-ray of breast cancer specimens removed at surgery, allowing the surgeon to be more precise in removing cancers from the breast, leading to better results. Anyone who wishes to make a difference and pledge the movement can donate by sending an SMS on 50617912 for a donation of €4.66 or 50619291 for a donation of €11.65.
