El Corte Inglés lit its Malaga stores in pink on Tuesday evening, 19 October, in support of World Breast Cancer Day.

The Spanish department store chain showed its commitment to breast tumour research with various actions including pink ribbons for employees, special lighting on the facades of shopping centres, prevention talks for employees, and so on.

Advances

Some 1,100 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer throughout this year in Malaga province. Almost 90 per cent will be able to overcome it thanks to advances in research and treatments.

Added to the problem of being diagnosed with a tumour, research has shown that one third of women with breast cancer lose their jobs as a result of the disease.
