While providing an example to the rest of the society an MP has decided to promote a fundraising event to be held next week. The MP has announced his full support for the charity event, Breast Cancer Campaign Wear it Pink day.
The man in question is none other than Iain Duncan Smith, the MP of Chingford and Woodford Green. The event would be held precisely a week later and would be receiving immense support from educational institutions and businesses. The event involves donating £2 each in lieu of a pink dress to wear on the day.
The proceeds of the event would be directed towards breast cancer support and research. The previous event that was held last year had witnessed the participation of more than 1 million people.
MP Smith while talking about the dreaded breast cancer stated that in the UK 45,500 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually. The breast cancer is known to affect men as well, although on rare occasions, still it is able to kill an estimated three hundred men in a year.
He further added that “I know people who have lost friends and family members to the disease”. He also said that he would be supporting the initiative and would hope his constituency to show immense participation as well.
