The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this is why I thought it would be a good opportunity to get KIS involved in the promotion of research in breast cancer. When looking online, we came across an organisation called The Bangkok Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG). This organisation not only does research in the field, but also support women who are going through or have gone through suffering of cancer.
On the last day before the October break, a casual friday was held where everyone wore pink. Those who dressed up had to donate 20baht. We raised over 20,000 baht that will be donated to the BBCSG organisation for further development of research in breast cancer.
