Warid supports Pink Ribbon to spread breast cancer awareness
Lahore: 06, October, 2010: Warid Telecom (Pvt.) Ltd supports Pink Ribbon to spread awareness about breast cancer in Pakistan. Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer for any Asian population in the world. It is the most frequent malignancy in women, where it accounts for 38.5% of all female cancers. About half (43.7%) of all breast cancers are locally advanced accounting to 40,000 deaths per year.
