Cambridge MP Julian Huppert In The Pink To Support Fight Against Breast Cancer

Cambridge MP Julian Huppert
MP Julian Huppert is in the pink supporting the fight against breast cancer.

He is taking part in Breast Cancer Campaign’s award winning fund-raiser Wear It Pink and is urging Cambridge residents to join him.

The campaign is in its 10th year and on Friday, October 26 supporters from all over the country will support the charity’s new theme, superheroes, stemming from the belief that everybody who joins the fight is a super hero.

Julian said: “It is vital that we continue to raise money for research into this disease. Every year thousands of people, women and men, are diagnosed with breast cancer. But the survival rates are improving all the time thanks to the research that is taking place; we must make sure that research can continue.”
