Are you ready to think pink?
As you may know… October rolls around everything becomes a fabulous shade of, you guessed it, pink! Although this is a delightful hue, there’s more to pink than that. Along with other influencers, I’m going pink to raise awareness for the Big Pink campaign, which is led by Breast Cancer Care – a wonderful charity providing care, support and information for people affected by breast cancer.
So our goal is to raise awareness of the facts about breast cancer – and provide you with some excellent pink eye candy in the process!
What is Big Pink and Breast Cancer Care?
Very sadly breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and the lifetime risk of a woman
developing breast cancer is 1 in 8. Heartbreakingly 62,000 people in the UK are told they have breast cancer. It must truly be one of the most awful things to be told and I’m sure we all know someone who’s trodden this path.
Breast Cancer Care understands the emotions, challenges and decisions people face every day. They know that everyone’s experience is different. That’s why they are there to offer support and information and campaign for better care.
Not only that, but Breast Cancer Care are the only specialist UK-wide charity, which means they really get us. We’re women, who love other amazing women in our lives and this really shouldn’t happen today – the figure is just way too high.
So what’s a girl to do? Well first off, we just need your dollar bill! Or pesos, or euros.. you get my drift! I would love you all to help raise money for Breast Cancer Care so that they can support more people.
