Wear it Pink day at GasanMamo In­sur­ance

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

GasanMamo In­sur­ance once again joined a world­wide cam­paign dur­ing the month of Oc­to­ber in cre­at­ing con­scious­ness to help fight breast can­cer. Ear­lier this month, the com­pany or­gan­ised a dress down day for ev­ery­one work­ing at GasanMamo to raise money for breast can­cer aware­ness and re­search while host­ing pink-themed events and giv­ing sweets treats to walk in clients and staff.

“We are proud to say that our dress down day or as it is gen­er­ally known in other coun­tries, Wear It Pink day was a suc­cess at GasanMamo as all em­ploy­ees, in­clud­ing the man­age­ment, stood to­gether against breast can­cer by wear­ing it pink. Ob­vi­ously the aim of this cam­paign is to sup­port women and men, who have had or may have breast can­cer and to cre­ate aware­ness,” said Ju­lian J. Mamo, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor.

GasanMamo be­lieves that aware­ness is in­stru­men­tal in help­ing in­di­vid­u­als take and make the nec­es­sary changes to com­bat breast can­cer. This way, both men and women can fa­mil­iarise them­selves with their body and will be able to per­ceive any un­com­mon lumps that might de­velop over time. In re­al­ity breast can­cer in men is a rare dis­ease as less than 1% of all breast can­cers oc­cur in men but it is very im­por­tant that both men and women are aware of this cause.

GasanMamo In­sur­ance thor­oughly sup­ports the con­stant ef­fort to com­mu­ni­cate and up­surge aware­ness among Mal­tese women and men, while re­duc­ing the stigma of breast can­cer through in­for­ma­tion and teach­ing cam­paigns on symp­toms and avail­able treat­ment. It’s a fact that bet­ter in­for­ma­tion has led to ear­lier dis­cov­er­ies of breast can­cer in turn lead­ing to a quicker re­sponse. Through­out this month, the com­pany’s head of­fice fa­cade in Msida Road, Gżira is be­ing lit up in pink in ob­ser­va­tion of breast can­cer aware­ness.
