October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organisations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month we aim to get as many people as possible involved in raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
More of us are being diagnosed with breast cancer than ever before and the disease is still devastating lives on a heart-breaking scale. We can’t live with that and we’re pretty sure you can’t either.
So every Breast Cancer Awareness Month we need your help, more than ever, to take action against breast cancer and create a future where everyone who develops the disease can live – and live well.
‘Wear it pink’ is our biggest fundraising event of the year – and this year it was a huge success. On Friday 19 October, supporters at work, school and in their communities wore pink and raised as much money as they could to help make life-saving research happen.
