McLeod joins the fight against breast cancer

SNP MSP for the South of Scotland Dr Aileen McLeod has joined the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s biggest (and pinkest) fundraiser, wear it pink day.


Over the last 10 years wear it pink has raised a staggering £23 million and on Friday 25 October 2013 people will come together in schools, colleges and businesses across Scotland to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Campaign’s lifesaving research.


Dr McLeod commented:


 “Every year in Scotland around 4,400 people are diagnosed with breast cancer, including around 25 men. Sadly, around 1,000 people die from the disease each year.


“This is why we need to support Breast Cancer Campaign’s fundraising efforts so they can continue to fund research which will one day lead to a cure. So please join me, wear something pink and donate £2, it’s really as simple as that.”


“The Breast Cancer Campaign really needs the money raised from wear it pink for its researchers to have the best possible chance to find the cure. To register for wear it pink and receive your fundraising pack visit or call 0800 107 3104.”
