Published date : 18 Sep 2019
Jenny Gilruth, MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes added a dash of pink to her usual attire to support Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink fundraiser, which takes place on Friday 18 October.
Ms Gilruth is calling for her constituents to join her, by signing up for wear it pink and helping to fund world-class breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by the disease.
Since launching in 2002, wear it pink has had an enormous impact on the lives of those affected by breast cancer, raising over £33 million to date.
Jenny Gilruth MSP, said:
“Every year in Scotland, around 4,700 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 1,000 women die of the disease. That’s why I’m encouraging my constituents to take part in Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink day on Friday 18 October.
“The money raised by this wonderful event has such a huge impact, allowing Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research and support for those living with a diagnosis. I hope that everybody will wear it pink this October and support this very important cause.”
Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now, said:
“Breast cancer still affects so many of us, and our goal as a charity is that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and be supported to live well. The money raised from wear it pink is so crucial to this helping us to fund vital breast cancer research and support for those affected by the disease.
“We hope that by wearing pink, Jenny Gilruth MSP will encourage more people to wear it pink in on 18 October and help us to continue to fund vital breast cancer research and support.”
