Anne McTaggart MSP | Anne McTaggart MSP joins the fight against breast cancer by wearing pink | IWC2
Glasgow Labour MSP Anne McTaggart has joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s flagship fundraiser, Wear it Pink day.
The theme of Wear it Pink this year is to ‘look good, do good’ in support of breast cancer research. On Friday 24 October people across the country will come together to find fun and stylish ways to Wear it Pink in the office, at home or at school.
Donations raised by this year’s fashion inspired event will go to Breast Cancer Campaign to fund lifesaving breast cancer research.
Ms McTaggart said “Every year in Scotland more than 4,500 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Sadly, more than 1,000 women die from this disease each year. This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts to support world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives, giving people quicker diagnoses and more effective treatments. I hope you’ll all join me by wearing it pink on Friday 24 October and showing your support for breast cancer research.”
