After the huge success that we had last year, Naelofar Hijab have decided to conduct another #NHPink Campaign this October to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
This will be the second time that we are participating in this month-long campaign. This year, for the first time ever, we will be collaborating with Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA) to raise more awareness to the cause.
The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness, that's why for the whole month of October, we will be giving out 20% discounts for selected pink hijabs on our website and in our boutique. All proceeds from the sales will be donated to BCWA.
This campaign will help to create more awareness about breast cancer, educate people on early detection and raise funds for BCWA.
In conjunction with this campaign, we are organising a special 3-day event held at our boutique between 24th October 2017 till 27th October 2017. A MURNI mobile vehicle will be stationed at the event and attendees will be able to get clinical breast exams for free. Nurses from BCWA will also be on hand to teach and guide anyone who wants to learn to do a breast self-exam.
We hope everyone will give their full support and make this event a success. More than 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer at the earliest stage survive the disease for at least 5 years compared to around 15% for women diagnosed at the most advanced stage of the disease. Early detection can really make a huge difference, this is why we feel that everyone should be educated on how to conduct their own breast self-exam, take this opportunity to learn how to do it while also enjoying other fun activities at our event.
