Every October, major breast cancer charities gather together to organise events to raise funds for research into the cause, prevention and cure of the condition. Which is why these brands are not only hoping to generate honest conversations around it but to also raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF).
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women in Singapore. And over the past 40 years, cases of breast cancer diagnoses has more than doubled. But with early detection, survival rate in its early stages is 92 per cent.
The BCF is a non-profit organisation in Singapore and they are dedicated to promoting early detection and provide support to those affected by the disease. Their mission is to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening condition.
And here’s what you can do to help:

Sufferers of breast cancer may feel like they’re losing an essential part of their femininity but it’s important to reassure them of their identity. The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign is one of the brands that have pioneered the movement to eradicate breast cancer at its roots.
What You Can Do
Purchase a bottle of Advanced Night repair serum that has been reinvented in hot pink, complete with a tassel keychain and $20 will be donated from each sale to the BCF. There are also other products you can purchase as part of the brand’s #TimeToEndBreastCancer global mission. Find out more here.
Available at all Estee Lauder counters, www.sephora.sg and www.lazada.sg

The BCF is in partnership with TAG Heuer to organise a private cocktail event that will feature a silent auction where TAG Heuer will be putting up a Carrera Lady Rose Gold & Diamonds piece for auction and all funds raised will go to the BCF. The purpose is to raise breast cancer awareness among its attendees. Hidden in the shadows are the caretakers and families of the sufferers and to raise awareness also helps to shed light on how breast cancer is not just a woman’s problem.
What You Can Do
For the month of October, TAG Heuer has pledged to donate 5 per cent of sales of their timepieces.
Participating outlets include three TAG Heuer Singapore boutiques: Wisma Atria, ION and Marina Square.

What You Can Do
