Why I wear it pink

Breast Cancer Campaign supporter Toral Shah

Our supporter and health chef, Toral, shares her story and explains why she supports wear it pink every year.

"Pink. Such a feminine, gentle, caring colour – the exact opposite of breast cancer; invasive, aggressive, indiscriminate. The pink ribbon became a symbol for breast cancer in 1992 for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the US. It represents fear of breast cancer, yet hope for the future."

The importance of the cancer peer review programme

Sian Hallewell is the Chair of the Cancer Peer Review National User Steering Group (NUSG), and she has been treated twice for breast cancer herself. Here, she explains why she is supporting our petition to save the cancer peer review programme.

One of our lovely volunteer groups, Simply the Breast, have taken on a new kind of challenge this year as part of their fundraising and have recently recorded a single– ‘Simply the Breast’.  This is their unique take on Tina Turner’s Simply the Best. All profits from the single will go to Breast Cancer Campaign. One of the members Andrea tells us how this became their theme tune.
