Will your school wear it pink this year?

2021 is the 20th year that we’ll all be wearing it pink, with over £36 million raised since 2002.

Meet Rosemarie

Rosemarie was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in September 2017. She took part in wear it pink at the school she works in.

“On the day, staff at the school I work in all wore something pink to work. We decorated the staff room, played games, and generally used the resources which came in the pack. The conversation had begun; we got everyone talking including children and parents. I think it’s so important that people wear pink on October 22 this year to continue to raise awareness.”

About Breast Cancer Now

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by lifechanging care.

We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer, the whole way through, providing support for today and hope for the future.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on our ability to deliver the progress and support that so many people affected by breast cancer rely on us for.

Breast cancer hasn’t stopped for this pandemic. Over the past year people have been diagnosed with the disease at a time when everything from treatment to screenings have been disrupted. The support we provide and the hope our research generates has never been more important.

It will help us make sure that by 2050, everyone diagnosed with breast cancer lives, and lives well.
