Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in this country. It affects 1 out of every 8 women; over 16,000 new cases are diagnosed in Spain each year. Regular medical checks are the best way to prevent it. If detected in time, it can be beaten in almost 100% of cases
The "Charity" mattress for a healthier lifestyle
Since we at Pikolin are committed to health and aware of the importance of early detection, Pikolin supports the fight against Breast Cancer, by launching the 'Charity Mattress'. Part of the profits from the sale of this product will go to support the Spanish Cancer Association (a.e.c.c), to be used for research and prevention projects.
Over four years, Pikolin has developed a major awareness campaign about the importance of regular visits to the gynaecologist in order to prevent breast cancer and donates part of its income to this cause. This cancer affects 1 out of every 8 women in Spain.
Sonsoles Suárez, who has survived this disease, has taken a central role in this campaign. She shows women that, in 95% of cases, early detection leads to a cure.
In 2008, with Pikolin's support, Miguel Bosé gave an exclusive concert to raise money for women who had the disease, at which he expressed his excitement at supporting this cause.
During these campaigns, over 10 million informative leaflets have been distributed to Pikolin's official points of sale, advertisements have been run on all TV channels, a website, www.pikolincontraelcancer.com has been created, as has a Facebook page, "Pikolin Solidario"
