Joining the fight against breast cancer, the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai team were at the BurJuman Pink Walkathon 2013 in Dubai recently. Held for the tenth consecutive year, the popular event was aimed at supporting breast cancer campaign and fund-raising as well as at providing encouragement and compassion for the survivors, their family and friends.
Mr Scott Butcher, General Manager, Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel, Dubai, said that such campaigns deserve active participation as they offer practical advice on preventive lifestyle measures women can adopt to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
“The local authorities are doing a phenomenal job to raise awareness through various mediums including TV and radio advertisements. But we are equally responsible to support such drives that not only raise awareness but also remind those in the age-group of heightened risk to go for regular screening and self-examinations,” he said.
According to the World Health Organisation, breast cancer is the top cancer in women both in the developed and the developing world. The incidence of breast cancer is increasing in the developing world due to increased life expectancy, urbanisation and adoption of wrong lifestyles. Although some risk reduction might be achieved with prevention, early detection remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control as the earlier a diagnosis is made the better the chance of successful treatment.
