Nhood supports the work of the Breast Cancer Cure Foundation again this year


Nhood supports the work of the Breast Cancer Cure Foundation again this year  

We also consider it important to help fight breast cancer because of Nhood’s humane values of caring for the people and the planet  

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, claiming the lives of more than 2,000 women in our country every year.  

We believe it is important to support the fight against breast cancer not only because of the female customers of the Auchan Korzós we operate, but also because of our female employees and Nhood's humane values of caring for people and the planet. Therefore, as last year, this year we are also donating HUF 500,000 to the Breast Cancer Cure Foundation.

The Foundation for Breast Cancer Cure was established almost three decades ago with the aim to develop breast cancer research in Hungary, to bring together breast cancer specialists, to seek international cooperation to promote the cure, and to provide a wide range of information on breast cancer prevention and treatment, in addition to its professional activities.  

At Nhood, we also believe it is essential to raise awareness of the disease and the importance of early detection through our communication tools. Because breast cancer is mostly painless, many people consult a doctor too late, even though treatment is more effective the earlier the cancer is detected.  

According to specialists, screening is recommended at least every two years from the age of 45, i.e. when entering the vulnerable age group. In addition, regular self-examination is recommended from a younger age. It is also important to note that breast cancer is not only a disease of women, but also affects a small percentage of men. Therefore, the disease should not be taboo. We need to talk about it as everybody’s health is important.
