John Mason, SNP MSP for Glasgow Shettleston is backing the fight against breast cancer by taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fundraiser, wear it pink day – and he wants constituents to join him.

Now in its 10th year, wear it pink, on Friday 26 October 2012 will see supporters from all over the country in schools, colleges and businesses embracing the event’s new theme, superheroes. The theme stems from the charity’s belief that everybody who joins the fight – from people affected by breast cancer, to Breast Cancer Campaign scientists and all wear it pink participants – is a superhero.

Breast Cancer Campaign is asking everyone to pull on something pink and donate £2.00, whether it’s a superhero cape, pink socks or pink pants you wear over your tights, you can help the charity achieve its target of raising £2 million, so they can continue to fund ground-breaking research.

Join the hundreds of thousands of people who take part in wear it pink every year.  With your help Breast Cancer Campaign can improve survival rates for the one in eight women who experience breast cancer during their lifetime.

Commenting, John Mason MSP said:

“I am proud to be able to show my support for the ‘Wear It Pink’ campaign.  Cancer as a whole affects around 1 in 3 people across the UK, and breast cancer is one of our biggest killers.

“Everyone will know family, friends or colleagues who have been touched by cancer in some way, and it is vitally important that we raise funds to help fight back against the disease.

“It is essential that both women and men get themselves checked if they notice any kind of abnormality.  That way treatment can be sought fast and there will be a better chance of beating the condition.”
