They say that 1 out of 8 women in the world today suffer from breast cancer as if it were as easy to get it as the common cold. Sadly, it still remains the top killer for Filipino women up to this very day, what’s worse is that several of our public hospitals are not yet 100% ready to battle the condition.

Simply knowing these facts won’t really change anything, but concrete action towards better prevention, treatment and support in whatever form, can go a long way. Avon, the foremost corporate advocate of breast cancer invites every Filipino to seize the opportunity to do something through the 2013 Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) fundraising event.


Avon Do Something Beautiful


What: Avon Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) Manila Run

When: October 13, 2013 (Sunday)

Where: SM Mall of Asia Grounds

Beneficiary: Philippine General Hospital  (PGH) Breast Cancer Care Center and selected provincial hospitals

Since its Philippine launch in 2002, it has been Avon KGBC’s mission to help provide access to care and support medically under-served women. This year, the company for women is once again leading the charge to gain further support for the cause by launching the ‘Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer’ Campaign. The idea behind it is simple – it speaks to the Filipinos innate trait of being “matulungin” or helpful, doing something for someone because you are capable and are willing to help another in need.
