Cancer remains one of the world's leading causes of morbid-mortality. That is to say, it is one of the diseases that causes most deaths worldwide. Specifically, breast cancer is among the five most commonly diagnosed types.
These are frightening figures but, in contrast, and in the words of the WHO itself, "when detected early, a proper diagnosis is established and treatment is available, the chances of cure are high”. In fact, in industrialized countries the survival rate of breast cancer after 5 years is around 90%.
This is precisely what World Breast Cancer Awareness Month emphasizes: the importance of research and early diagnosis.
In our country, the Spanish Association Against Cancer works tirelessly to diminish the impact caused by the disease and to improve people's lives, educating in health, supporting and accompanying and promoting research. It is, without a doubt, a commendable work that includes awareness campaigns, training, fundraising, direct aid... A positive approach to a grey situation that needs to be supported by everyone.
This month, the effort is especially focused on research and early detection of breast cancer; a work that from Laken we want to support by donating 10% of the revenue from the sale of our pink bottles. To make the sale higher, we also offer our customers a 10% discount for the purchase of these bottles with the code: MESUMOALROSACONLAKEN
1 in 8 women will have breast cancer in their lifetime.
Every 15 seconds a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in our country.
