A MOCK cheque of BND16,452 was presented by the Pantai Jerudong Specialist Centre (PJSC) to the Brunei Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG) during a ceremony at the Lecture Theatre, Level RF of the PJSC yesterday.

The event also honoured sponsors and vendors of last year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Roadshow organised by PJSC.

The guest of honour PJSC Executive Director Dr Haji Mazrul Adimin bin Haji Awang Besar presented the mock cheque to BBCSG Vice President Hajah Linda Aini binti Abdullah, who represented the President of BBCSG.

The ceremony was in support of BBCSG’s mission to promote the welfare of breast cancer patients and survivors, and their families.

It also recognised BBCSG’s continuous efforts to raise awareness on breast cancer with funds donated by Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) during PJSC’s Breast Cancer Awareness Roadshow on November 4, 2018 and collected from the sales of T-shirts and pink lapel pins organised by PJSC last year from October to December.
