October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.

Free Pink Stickers from Marhaba!

The breast cancer awareness campaign is something that we support annually to help propagate information on how women can protect themselves from the disease through early detection. By wearing and sharing the Marhaba pink stickers, you are participating in our advocacy and helping spread awareness. 

Wearing our stickers won’t cure cancer, but it will help spread the word that this disease if detected early, can still be cured. Help us spread the word.

Alfa Romeo Dinner for Cancer Survivors 2

Alfardan Sports Motors – authorised reseller of Alfa Romeo in Qatar – and Qatar Cancer Society hosted a dinner for cancer survivors catered by Marsa Malaz Kempinski Hotel in honour of the annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. This year’s dinner recognised the people touched by cancer, spreading awareness about their fight against a disease that has affected many Arabs and their families across the region.

Survivors shared their experiences with guests and and the progress by which those affected are battling the disease – from the moment of diagnosis through treatment and remission, thanks to the concerted awareness campaign led by QCS and concerned members of the community. The evening ended on a happy note as Alfa Romeo offered a complimentary weekend test drive to one of the survivors chosen by Qatar Cancer Society, to explore the Italian brand’s iconic luxury sports models – surely a mind-blowing experience for anyone.

All About Breast Cancer Screening

Early detection is key to achieving the best possible outcome from breast cancer. A mammogram is a simple, non-invasive exam that can help detect potential breast cancer at the earliest possible time.

In addition to being breast aware and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, it is recommended that women begin regular breast cancer screenings from the age of 45. Breast cancer screening is for women without any signs and symptoms.
