Marigold Launches Pink Oct-Movember Campaign 2023

Marigold have launched the Pink Oct – Mov ’23 Campaign🙌




For the 8th consecutive year, the Nationwide Pink Oct – Mov ’23 Campaign has made a grand return! This campaign was officially launched today by Michelle Muscat, Chairperson of The Marigold Foundation, with the patronage of Mrs. Miriam Vella, the First Lady.

This year, the campaign, carrying the slogan “Don’t Stand Still,” is dedicated to raising awareness about common cancers affecting both women and men, including breast, ovarian, cervical, testicular, and prostate cancer. The primary message encourages individuals to perform self-checks and undergo testing. Additionally, the campaign emphasizes preventive measures such as HPV vaccination.

In tandem with its educational and preventive initiatives, the campaign aims to shed light on the mental health challenges faced by cancer survivors, patients, and caregivers. It seeks to break the silence and encourage people to seek support, recognizing the often-overlooked aspect of mental well-being in the cancer journey.

The public is urged to watch out for campaign messages across various media channels, including radio, billboards, TV ads, social media, and online posts, to learn how to take proactive steps and maintain regular self-care.

The Pink October-Movember campaign has always used eye-catching visuals to capture attention and inspire action. This year, nude stone and marble statues, representing areas affected by common cancers, serve as a poignant reminder of the campaign’s theme, “Don’t Stand Still.” These statues freeze a moment in time, prompting us to pause and reflect on our responsibility to care for our bodies.

Prominent clinicians and surgeons in Malta, including Dr. Nick Refalo, Clinical Chair of SAMOC, Dr. Kristel Von Brockdorff, Consultant Oncologist, and Dr. Danika Marmara, Cancer Pathways Director, emphasized the campaign’s crucial role in raising awareness and educating the public.

The Annual Nationwide Pink Oct – Mov ’23 Campaign is led and organized by The Marigold Foundation. As in previous years, donations collected will contribute to a national fund, supporting breast care and cancer NGOs for research and education.

Generous donations will potentially fund the first Cancer Community Outreach Project in collaboration with the Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre.
