PINK October is a worldwide advocacy to bring to light breast cancer research, diagnosis and treatment efforts, and offer support to patients affected by the disease.
Ayala Center Cebu led the advocacy campaign in the region 10 years ago and continues to give the community a platform to raise breast cancer awareness and avenues to support the movement.
