MP supports Breast Cancer campaign and ‘Wears it Pink’
Local MP, Andrew George, is supporting Breast Cancer Campaign’s “Wear It Pink” event to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Over the last 10 years ‘Wear it Pink’ has raised £23 million and on Friday 25th October 2013 people will come together in schools, colleges and businesses throughout the country to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Campaign’s lifesaving research.
Mr George said: “Every year in the UK around 50,000 women and around 400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly 12,000 women and 80 men die from this disease. It is therefore important to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts so they can continue to fund research which, we hope, will one day lead to even more effective treatment and, perhaps, a cure.”
