Pink October 2022: 6 Afternoon tea sets to support breast cancer awareness

Every October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, also known as Pink October—an annual campaign to spread awareness about breast cancer, including its causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. 

According to The Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women in Malaysia, where one in 19 women is at risk of being afflicted. Given the statistics, chances are that we know at least one person who has been diagnosed with the deadly disease. 

Aside from educating yourself on the disease and doing your due diligence (read: get screened!), you can support the cause by donating to breast cancer organisations such as the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA). Alternatively, you can also contribute to these organisations indirectly by supporting other Pink October-related initiatives. 

If you’re a self-professed foodie, check out these special Pink Afternoon Tea menus in the Klang Valley that are lending a helping hand to breast cancer awareness, research and efforts.
