Each year in Switzerland, over 40,000 people are diagnosed with cancer.
In Switzerland, about 6200 women and 50 men are diagnosed with breast cancer (mammary carcinoma) every year. This makes breast cancer the most common type of cancer in women: breast cancer accounts for almost one third of all cancer diagnoses in women.
Although the risk of breast cancer increases significantly after the age of 50, the disease also affects younger women: 20% of all patients are younger than 50 at the time of diagnosis.
Employees of Credit Suisse in Switzerland will host a Pink Friday on 30th October.
Donations can be done till November 30th, 2020.
The Copalana association does not to take any commissions from the funding and gives 100% to Krebsliga Schweiz. The team wants to help address the one question most people have when they give: “What happens to my money?”
