Prime Minister David Cameron has issued a statement about Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This morning the Breast Cancer Campaign illuminated Number 10 Downing Street to support Wear It Pink Day on Friday 28 October.

Mr Cameron said:

I’m delighted we are able help raise awareness of breast cancer, a disease that affects thousands of women every year, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Tackling cancer is a priority for this Government and we want to raise survival rates to be among the best in Europe. Early detection can massively increase the chances of survival which is why fantastic campaigns like this are so important. I hope seeing 10 Downing Street go pink will inspire other people to get involved.
