Perr radione monthly column - October

Pink Ribbon Month

It has become a completely cool climate, and autumn has come to be easy to spend.

I'm looking forward to the autumnal leaves season.

Well, speaking of October, it is Pink Ribbon Month. Pink Ribbon is a symbol of activities that know the correct knowledge about breast cancer and protect as many people as possible who are saddened by breast cancer. It began in the United States in the 1980s, and its activities were recognized and spread around the world.

Currently, it is said that one in 11 Japanese women will have breast cancer once in their lifetime, making it a familiar disease for Japanese people. It is said to spike in the late 30s and peak in the late 40s and early 60s.

In Japan, pink ribbon activities are expanding year by year. On October 1st, it is lit up in pink at Tokyo Tower, Rainbow Bridge, Nagoya Castle, Himeji Castle, etc. as "Pink Ribbon Day". In this way, the light-up at famous places is an opportunity to gain interest from a wide range of generations.

Perr radione, who lives with women, promotes regular breast cancer testing. We aim to create a society where as many people as possible can smile at the early detection of breast cancer.

We will support every day that all women involved in Perr radioone can live with a smile.
