As we all well know, October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH around the globe! We’re excited to share with our readers the news about the UK’s first ever national cancer tissue bank. The Breast Cancer Campaign Tissue Bank is a unique collaboration with four leading research institutions that have created a vital resource of breast cancer tissue for scientists across the UK and Ireland; to study how and why breast cancer develops and spreads, and to devise the best possible treatments. It’s the first of it’s kind anywhere in the world that gathers tissue samples donated by patients from across the UK and stores them safely and consistently for researchers.
Nails Inc., Sugarbabe’s Heidi Range, and Breast Cancer Campaign have joined forces to encourage both women and men to “Paint your pinkie pink” to raise awareness and donations to support the work of Breast Cancer Campaign’s Tissue Bank.
Fact is…..in the UK one in eight women will be affected by breast cancer in her lifetime and every year around 48,000 and 340 men are diagnosed with the disease. Every month 1000 women die of breast cancer.
Nails Inc. founder Thea Green adds, ” Breast Cancer touches all of us at one point in our lives. By raising awareness and ‘painting our pinkies pink’ we aim to raise essential funds to support the work of the Tissue Bank.”
