For the second consecutive year, Andrey & Julia Dashin’s Foundation shows its support to Breast Cancer Awareness Month by assisting Europa Donna Cyprus and supporting patients and their families across Cyprus.
The campaign was in alignment with FXTM’s own Wear it Pink Friday on October 19th, whereby employees based in the Cyprus office were asked to show their support. Breast cancer still ranks as the number one cause of death in Cyprus, with symptoms present in one of eight women on the island.
Europa Donna Cyprus is an independent non-profit organization which represents the interests of Cyprus-based women regarding breast cancer to local and national authorities as well as to institutions of the European Union. Europa Donna Cyprus also presses on important subjects like improved breast cancer education, appropriate screening, optimal treatment and increased funding for research.
It is worth noting that Founders Andrey and Julia Dashin personally contributed to the campaign with FXTM, raising the total amount of donation to 1,000 EUR. Founder Julia Dashin commented that:
“Early diagnosis plays a huge role in the successful treatment of breast cancer. If women were informed about all aspects of the disease in order to properly self-diagnose themselves, we could reduce the mortality rate related to breast cancer on the island. Knowledge is power, and health has, and always will be, a priority for a good and successful life”.
