David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness of its biggest fundraising event, wear it pink day.
On Friday 28 October 2011 supporters in schools, colleges and businesses throughout the country are encouraged to don an item of pink in support of Campaign and each donate £2 to fund innovative world-class breast cancer research.
Last year hundreds of thousands of people took part in wear it pink to help improve survival rates for the one in eight women who experience breast cancer during their lifetime. Every year in the UK, around 48,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women. Men can also suffer from breast cancer, with around 340 males diagnosed each year.
Mr Evennett said “I am pleased support wear it pink 2011 and hope that as many people as possible join in with this campaign. It is an important way of raising awareness of the disease and raising funds for vital breast cancer research.”
