Steve McCabe MP wears it pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Steve McCabe MP (Birmingham, Selly Oak), has joined with Breast Cancer Now to show his support for women with breast cancer by dressing up in pink and encouraging people across the constituency  to take part in  ‘wear it pink’, on Friday 23rd October.

Wear it pink, the UK’s biggest pink fundraiser, calls on supporters across the country to ditch the day-to-day colours and put on some pink to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving breast cancer research. Breast cancer is still the most common cancer in the UK. Nearly 700,000 people living in the UK have experienced a diagnosis and one in eight women will face it in their lifetime.

Now in its 14th year, the campaign raises over £2 million each year for world-class research into breast cancer. This year it is back and bigger, brighter and pinker than ever before. Anyone can take part, whether in school, at work or at home. All you have to do is wear something pink and donate whatever you can.

Steve McCabe MP said:

“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. It’s fantastic to see people standing up for women and families affected by this disease. Wear it pink, is a fun and simple way for everyone to get involved. I hope everyone across the local community will join me in wearing it pink on Friday 23 October and show their support for Breast Cancer Now.”
