Breast Cancer Awareness Month

02 October 2005
Posted by Chris Smith.

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, but why is it so important to be aware of breast cancer? It's because there are 40 000 cases of breast cancer each year in the UK, which amounts to around 750 each week. Cancer Research UK are hoping to raise money for research into the causes of breast cancer and finding new ways to treat it. And to do this, they're hosting a range of events, including sponsored walks called 'All Walk Together', and Pink Parties where everyone wears pink. If you want to get involved, go to www.cancerresearchuk.org/breastcancer or you can phone the hotline on 08701 602040. Get involved, raise some money, and have a good pink time this October.
