ISLE MP Andrew Percy is endorsing the Breast Cancer Campaign ahead of next month’s ‘wear it pink’ day.
The annual event will be held on Friday, October 28, and schools, colleges and businesses are encouraged to don pink items to support the campaign.
Individual donations of £2 will help fund breast cancer research and improve survival rates for the one in eight women who experiences the disease during their lifetime.
Mr Percy said: “Every year in the UK around 48,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women. Although it is rare, men can also suffer from breast cancer, with around 340 men diagnosed each year.
I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease and I would like to encourage everyone in my constituency and throughout the country to support wear it pink on October 28, to raise valuable funds for Breast Cancer Research.”
