Angus MacDonald MSP for Falkirk East is joining forces with Breast Cancer Campaign to raise awareness of its award winning 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 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.
Angus MacDonald MSP says “It is estimated that there are over 41,000 women and 150 men alive in Scotland who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease and would like to encourage everyone in my constituency/region of Falkirk East and throughout the country to support wear it pink on October 28, to raise valuable funds for breast cancer research.”
