On October 1, the association Le Cancer du Sein, Parlons-En! launches the 26th edition of Pink October in France, its informative operation to raise awareness and support the research against the disease lasting all October long.
This event is vital for the association supporting all year long the medical and scientific research and informing women about the breast cancer diagnostic. This year's slogan "TOUS UNIS PAR UNE MÊME COULEUR" [all united by the same color] gets a whole new meaning to fight the disease back. If for decades many progresses have been made in the medical research area or for improving the life quality of those affected by this illness, it's essential to keep fighting the disease.
Today, if detected in time, 9 breast cancers out of 10 can be cured. It's huge! But over 58,000 new cases are found every year in France and breast cancers are more important and deadly in women. So, yes, we should keep fighting as long as the disease is here and more than ever, we should be all united by the same color!
For the launch of this new edition of Pink October, the association organizes a great and free outdoor concert on Tuesday October 1 (prior registration mandatory).
On the occasion, the Eiffel Tower will be lit in pink at 8:20 p.m. with ambassador of the campaign Cristina Cordula and Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo, as well as Miss Frnace 2019, Vaimalama Chaves.
Together, they will mark the start of a month filled with events
So, don’t hesitate to look at and photograph the Eiffel Tower and share this strong supportive message with men and women - who have cancer or families, relatives, searchers and medical teams - who are fighting against this disease on a daily basis.
