Glob­alCap­i­tal spon­sors Pink Oc­to­ber 2016

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Glob­alCap­i­tal p.l.c. is the proud main spon­sor of Malta’s largest Pink Oc­to­ber cam­paign ever. The main aim of #PinkOc­to­berMalta is to raise funds and aware­ness about breast can­cer pre­ven­tion, re­search and for the pur­chas­ing of equip­ment to im­prove the qual­ity of life for can­cer pa­tients.

This is the first time that Pink Oc­to­ber Malta is re­ceiv­ing a fi­nan­cial boost from a cor­po­rate spon­sor since in­cep­tion in 2014.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Glob­alCap­i­tal and Pink Oc­to­ber Malta co­in­cides with the launch­ing of Can­cer Care - a new insurance prod­uct by Glob­alCap­i­tal of­fer­ing up to €100,000 in fi­nan­cial sup­port for pol­i­cy­hold­ers who en­counter can­cer dur­ing the term of their pol­icy.

Un­like other life insurance prod­ucts avail­able in the mar­ket, Can­cer Care pro­vides peace of mind that if and when a can­cer is di­ag­nosed, the pa­tient will have one less bur­den to worry about – fi­nan­cial in­de­pen­dence will be sup­ported through the Can­cer Care pol­icy.

More­over, chil­dren of pol­icy hold­ers are in­cluded in the pol­icy cover at no ad­di­tional cost and should a can­cer di­ag­no­sis emerge once again af­ter a five year can­cer free pe­riod, the fi­nan­cial sup­port up to €100,000 will be pro­vided once again.

Mr Reuben Zam­mit, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer at Glob­alCap­i­tal, said “Our busi­ness at Glob­alCap­i­tal is de­rived from pro­tect­ing life and health. Insurance prod­ucts pro­vide a shoul­der and peace of mind when unpleasant cir­cum­stances in our lives un­fold un­ex­pect­edly. How­ever, the best pro­tec­tion al­ways stems from lead­ing healthy life­styles and aware­ness; early di­ag­no­sis in­creases sur­vival chances. This is the main rea­son why Glob­alCap­i­tal has joined forces with Pink Oc­to­ber Malta - to raise as much aware­ness as pos­si­ble on breast can­cer and the avail­able meth­ods to fight it.”

“The fea­tures of our Can­cer Care pol­icy are unique and ex­clu­sively de­signed to help in­di­vid­u­als who en­counter can­cer at some point in their life­time. 2 out of ev­ery 5 per­sons are at risk of en­coun­ter­ing can­cer at some point in their lives” Mr Zam­mit ex­plained.

The Pink Oc­to­ber 2016 cam­paign aims to raise €90,000 from cor­po­rate spon­sors, pri­vate do­na­tions and from var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties which will be held through­out Oc­to­ber. The funds will be used to pur­chase a Fax­itron Bio­vi­sion ma­chine to fur­ther en­hance di­ag­nos­tic pre­ci­sion and ef­fec­tive­ness dur­ing breast and other can­cer re­lated surgery.

Pink Oc­to­ber 2016 brings to­gether a num­ber of non-profit and com­mer­cial en­ti­ties un­der an um­brella move­ment united by a shared vi­sion to step up the fight against breast can­cer, in­clud­ing The Marigold Foun­da­tion, NGOs Europa Donna Malta and Ac­tion for Breast Can­cer, JPA, the ma­jor­ity of Malta’s me­dia houses and nu­mer­ous com­mer­cial part­ners.

Sev­eral events will be held through­out Oc­to­ber to raise funds and aware­ness. More in­for­ma­tion and reg­is­tra­tion at www.pinkoc­to­ber.sup­port
