I dressed in pink to lend my support to Breast Cancer Now’s flagship fundraiser, wear it pink “Wear it Pink”, which will see thousands of people across the UK adding a splash of pink to their outfits on Friday 20 October and raise vital funds for breast cancer research.
Breast cancer affects so many people in Edinburgh and across Scotland. It is the most common cancer in the UK. One in eight women will face it in their lifetime, and every year around 11,500 women and 80 men lose their lives to the disease.
That is why, as a Breast Cancer Now Ambassador, I am proud to take part in Wear it Pink to raise awareness of the impact of the disease locally and to support for Breast Cancer Now’s vital research. I hope that everybody in Edinburgh South will join me and “wear it pink" on Friday 20 October. It’s such a fun and easy way to support Breast Cancer Now’s vital research, and help stop breast cancer taking the lives of those we love.
