Breast cancer is still the most common form of cancer in the UK. Each year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease. That’s why I’m so passionate about encouraging everyone in Edinburgh to take part in wear it pink day on Friday 19 October.
Wear it pink is great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now’s vital research. As you can see from my photograph, all it takes is an additional splash of pink to your normal outfit!
As a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador I am proud to raise awareness of the impact of the disease locally, and to support and advocate Breast Cancer Now’s research. Breast cancer affects so many people in Edinburgh South, so I hope that everybody in Edinburgh South will get involved this October and support this very important cause.
