Representatives of the “Wacoal Pink Bra Fights Breast Cancer” project on Wednesday presented the Thai National Cancer Institute with Bt1 million it raised to cover the cost of “Check-up Gold” mammograms and ultrasound scans being offered for free this month.

October is Breast Cancer Prevention Month and 460 women are registered to undergo the free check-ups throughout the month at the institute’s Damrong Niradura Building, director Dr Weerawut Imsamran said on accepting the donation.

Wacoal, a maker of women’s undergarments, has said it wants to encourage women, especially those in at-risk groups, to have their health checked annually.

Regular check-ups have been shown to vastly reduce mortality and increase the chances of a successful cure.
