Labour MEP backing the fight against breast cancer

Glenis Willmott is backing the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fundraiser, “wear it pink” day – and wants constituents to join her.

Now in its 10th year, “wear it pink” day, on Friday 26 October 2012, will see supporters from all over the country in schools, colleges and businesses embracing the event’s new theme – superheroes. The theme stems from the charity’s belief that everybody who joins the fight – from people affected by breast cancer, to Breast Cancer Campaign scientists and all wear it pink participants – is a superhero.

Glenis said MEP said: “One in every eight women experience breast cancer during their lifetime, and each year, over 330,000 women across Europe and around 48,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with the disease.  Supporting the “wear it pink” day will help, but we also need to work together with our European partners to carry out better research into breast cancer, have more data about the disease, and develop more effective treatments.”
