The staff at Dragon Bay came to
work dressed in pink last Friday to show their support for the community
initiatives of the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Cayman Islands.
Ken Crews, development manager for
Dragon Bay, said that breast cancer touches everyone.
“Breast cancer is a very important
issue that has affected all of us at some point through friends and family,” he
The money collected from the annual
Dress Pink Day will go toward funding organisations that promote public
awareness of the disease. It will also
help breast cancer patients and support breast cancer research.
Mr. Crews and his team at Dragon
Bay said they looked forward to the day where they all wore pink.
“We were all very eager to be given
a chance to do our small part to help fund the initiatives of the Breast Cancer
Foundation and, hopefully, foster more prevention and early detection,” he
October is National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, which involves a partnership of national public service organisations,
professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to
promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide
greater access to screening services.
