I’m adding a fetching splash of pink to my outfit today to show my support for the Breast Cancer Now fundraiser. I was joined by 200 colleagues earlier this month aiming to encourage people to do their bit in fundraising for the charity.
Over the past 16 years, Breast Cancer Now has raised nearly £32 million for key research into breast cancer. Nearly 12,000 people die yearly from breast cancer in the UK and Breast Cancer Now are conducting key research to reduce this figure. The research includes aiming to discover how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively. Breast Cancer Now want to improve access to specialist nurses and breast checks for all.
Everyone can take part in the ‘wear it pink’ event today by either wearing something pink or organising a pink themed event. You can donate after wearing your pink outfit through this link; wearitpink.org/mp2018 With your help, Breast Cancer Now comes closer to its goal of ensuring all breast cancer sufferers survive by 2050. Please share your support on Twitter by using #wearitpink.
