Recently, I joined fellow MPs in wearing it pink to encourage people across the UK to get involved and support those affected by breast cancer.
Every year 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, and sadly around 11,500 women and 80 men will lose their lives to the disease.
#wearitpink raises close to £2 million for Breast Cancer Now each year which helps to fund world-class research. This research is aiming to tackle the disease from all angles, to ensure that, by 2050, everyone that develops the disease will live.
Anyone can take part in #wearitpink, whether at work, at home or at school. This year the event will take place on Friday 21 October, all you have to do is wear something pink and donate what you can. For more information or to register, visit www.wearitpink.org.
