I was delighted to take part Breast Cancer Now’s, wear it pink photo-call in the Scottish Parliament last week ahead of the UK’s biggest, brightest, and pinkest fundraiser on Friday the 20th of October.
Wear it pink is back for its 16th year, calling on supporters across the country to add a flash of pink to their wardrobe for the day and raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research and to support Breast Cancer Now’s efforts to ensure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in Scotland – unfortunately most people know of someone affected by this terrible disease. Every year around 4,600 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and almost 1,000 people will die of it.
Wear it pink is an important opportunity to stand together and support Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving research. I would like to urge local people across Lothian region to join me by wearing it pink on Friday 20 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.
