The Supreme Court of Pakistan building in the federal capital turns to Pink to raise awareness regarding breast cancer. The campaign is led by Pink Ribbon Pakistan, an organization working to raise awareness regarding breast cancer and it is marked annually on 1st of the October.
The event regarding breast cancer awareness was held at the Supreme Court that was organized to extend solidarity with the campaign and millions of Pakistani women. Speaking on the occasion, Pink Ribbon’s founder Omer Aftab said it is an honor for his organization to illuminate the highest court of Pakistan for such a noble cause.
“Involvement of such a sanctified institution has provided hope to thousands of breast cancer patients in Pakistan,” he said in a statement issued by Pink Ribbon, expressing gratitude to Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Ata Bandial for his “generous support” for the cause.
According to Pink Ribbon statistics, over 10 million Pakistani women are at a high risk of getting breast cancer. Remember that at least 40,000 lives are lost to breast cancer every year due to ignorance, late diagnosis, and myths related to the disease. Breast cancer is the only type of cancer among others that can be cured successfully if diagnosed at an early stage.
