The pageant finalists and guests had the opportunity to learn how to do a self breast examination for any lumps which potentially could be early signs of cancer.

Breast cancer survivor Chong Chu San, who has battled breast cancer and is now cancer free, was present to support the event and to share her experience with guests while BCWA Malaysia nurse Sister Mariyana showed the proper way to do self breast examination.

BCWA Malaysia general manager Lai Ngan Yin thanked everyone present for their unwavering support of the charity which she hoped will create awareness of breast cancer to the public.
