There are plenty of pink-themed events happening this month due to Pink October, and food is central to many of them.
But first a vital public service announcement…
Pink October was initiated internationally to create awareness about breast cancer. We want to highlight a fantastic screening service arranged by the Screen For Life project who have screening units at Al Wakra, Leabaib, and Rawadat Al Khail.
If breast cancer is caught at an early stage there is an almost 100% survival rate. As such regular mammograms are important especially for women over the age of 45.
For more information, and to book your screening, you can call Screen For Life on 8001112.
