Team Maypole has gone pink for breast cancer awareness month as part of the Pink October campaign.
All Maypole team members at our outlets will be wearing pink t-shirts so as to remind our clients about the importance of this month.
Cancer of the breast is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in women. Over the past 20 years, mortality from breast cancer in Malta has shown a steady decline and survival from this disease has registered marked improvement, despite the fact that incidence continues to increase.
Increased awareness as well as the development of specialised breast care health services have resulted in positive outcomes, with local mortality rates approaching that of the EU-15 average. It is our duty to help in making sure that awareness in Malta is strengthened every year.
