Ladies, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you want to get involved and support the research, here’s how to do so in Singapore for 2019.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month worldwide. Did you know that 1 in 11 Singaporean women may be affected by breast cancer in her lifetime? According to the Singapore Cancer Society, that is the number one cancer killer of Singaporean women.

In Singapore, there are tons of great initiatives going on to raise both awareness and funds about this disease that affects so many women around the world.

1. Shop for a cause: a rose gold filled jewel by Studio Emoi 

Women affected by the disease can lose confidence in themselves. Ode to femininity, Studio Emoi wants to empower their femininity no matter what and give them hope. Inspired by powerful words and human being, each jewel is hancrafted and customisable!

In October, Studio Emoi rose gold collection is at 5% off. While you can swoon over a powerful piece such as the BELIEVE or SHINE bracelet, a custom jewel it’s a little more meaningful and could become a mantra, an amulet, a reminder. Personally, we had a crush on this HOPE bracelet 

5% of online profits* will be reversed at Breast Cancer Foundation for the research. *Online orders made between 1st and 31st October 2019
