On average, 153 women a year are diagnosed and 32 women a year die from breast cancer in Sutton. Local MP, Tom Brake for Carshalton and Wallington joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fundraiser, ‘wear it pink’ day.
Tom commented saying, “The numbers of deaths in the UK from this awful disease is extremely high, particularly in Sutton. This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts to support world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments. I hope you’ll all join me by wearing it pink on Friday 24 October and showing your support for breast cancer research.”
The theme of ‘wear it pink’ this year is to ‘look good, do good’ in support of breast cancer research. On Friday 24 October people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to wear pink in the office, at home or at school. Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.
‘Wear it pink’ on Friday 24 October to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s lifesaving research. For more information or to register for ‘wear it pink’ and receive your fundraising pack visit www.wearitpink.org.
