Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — The Philippines has the highest incidence rate of breast cancer in Asia, with a projection that one out of 13 Filipinas will develop the disease in their lifetime.

Every October, people around the world commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness month in order to increase attention, support, and detection of the most common cancer in women worldwide.

Crimson Hotel is making efforts to contribute in raising awareness, especially in the Philippines. For the entire month of October, Crimson Hotel Filinvest is hosting a series of activities geared toward bringing together every mom, daughter, and sister to take action against the disease.

Called “Passionately Pink,” the campaign will also include special promotions, events, and activities for the benefit of Stage Zero by Project Pink Support Group, a non-stock, non-profit organization that provides assistance and support to cancer patients and their families.

“We have started our awareness campaign against breast cancer last year in line with our efforts to give back to our community. It is also alarming to know that the Philippines has the highest incidence of breast cancer in Asia. Both mom and the daughter are at risk of getting breast cancer. However, cancer prevention is possible if they know how to beat it. In addition to spreading word of mouth for this meaningful cause, our main goal is to raise funds that will benefit our partner foundation,” says Gerhard Doll, General Manager of Crimson Hotel Filinvest City.
