Wearing it Pink for Breast Cancer

I am very proud to be a supporter of the breast cancer support campaign, 'Wear it Pink' as part of the battle against cancer. As a Breast Cancer Ambassador, I am particularly passionate about standing up for the women and families affected by the disease and I am very proud to take part in events such as this to raise awareness and support for those affected by cancer, as well as those trying to cure it.

I was one of 230 MPs in Westminster to encourage people across the UK to support 'Wear it Pink'. Breast cancer is a huge challenge; every year in the UK around 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and sadly nearly 12,000 women still lose their lives to the disease.

The campaign is in its 14th year and to date has raised over £2 million each year during Breast Cancer Awareness Week and this year promises to be even bigger and better. Whether you are at school, work or home I encourage everyone to support Breast Cancer Now's research, and, in 'Wear it Pink', there is a fun and simple way for us to get involved on Friday 23rd October.
