The University of Malta commemorated Pink October 2017 on Tuesday, 24 October at the University Quadrangle.
Dr Carmen Sammut, Pro-Rector for Student and Staff Affairs and Outreach, welcomed students and staff, while Mrs Michelle Muscat, Chairperson of the Marigold Foundation addressed those present.
The contribution will assist an initiative by breast cancer surgeons and doctors who are starting a personalised well-being programme for patients to complement their medical treatment. There are around 300 cases of new breast cancer patients per year, who will now benefit from this vital programme.
Throughout the month of October donations will be accepted in Room 216A, Administration Building and at the KSU offices.
