“Every year, October marks the Breast Cancer Awareness month worldwide to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. With the Watsons Pink Power campaign, we aim to make a difference by empowering our shoppers as well as our staff to educate themselves on breast cancer awareness including promoting regular health checks. In order to reach out to the younger set of audience, this year we decided to bring to life the journey of a breast cancer survivor in a touching Instagram

Story inspired by a real-life breast cancer survivor. As there is nothing more impactful than visual messaging. We hope this video will increase the awareness of breast cancer and encourage self-checks and early detection. The Pink Power campaign in-collaboration with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia aims to communicate that breast cancer patients have support groups with various programs. This is so that breast cancer patients don’t feel helpless and alone in their challenging journey combating the disease. It is our privilege yet again for the second consecutive year to partner with the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia. We hope that the donations channeled from the Watsons Pink Power campaign to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia will enable the association to continue with their mission to improve the quality of life for women with breast cancer and to create a well-informed society with regard to breast health and breast cancer”, said Caryn Loh, Managing Director of Watsons Malaysia.

Present during the Pink Power campaign launch were Ms. Caryn Loh, Managing Director of Watsons Malaysia, Ms. Ranjit Kaur, President of the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia, Ms. Janet Khor, Vice President of the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia, Ms. Low Siew Hui, Finance Director of Watsons Malaysia and also a member of the Global Group CSR Committee, and Mr. Danny Hoh, Customer Director of Watsons Malaysia, partner brands representatives, members of the media and breast cancer survivors.
