October is breast cancer awareness month. An annual campaign to increase awareness, reduce the stigma of this disease and to encourage women and men as well to have their breast checked for early detection.

In support of this campaign, Bigby’s Quality Food Corporation, in collaboration with Thrive Foundation implemented a media launching and press conference last September 30, 2017 at Maison de Bonbon, Cagayan de Oro City. It is participated by the members of Thrive foundation, breast cancer survivors and advocators, doctors, bloggers, media, local government units, partnered brand Spruce and many more.
