Staff at the Bristol Breast Care Centre, based at Southmead Hospital have entered The Pink Glove Dance EU Competition in an attempt to win 8,000 Euros for the centre’s charity BUST.
To win the money, the video, which features surgeons staff from the centre, doctors, nurses and supporters of BUST including breast cancer survivors dancing in pink gloves to Capital Cities Safe and Sound, needs to gain the most votes.
Over 22,000 patients per year attend the Bristol Breast Care Centre, including a significant number of male patients. The numbers will continue to grow in line with the increased awareness of breast disease, especially in younger women.
The Bristol Breast Care Centre, which in 2013 incorporated United Hospitals Bristol staff and patients, is supported by the charity BUST. The charity supports patient care by raising funds to spend on innovation and the purchase of new technology before it is available through the NHS which supports the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with around 55,000 people diagnosed each year. The emphasis of the video campaign is on awareness of the importance of early detection of breast cancer with people being reminded to check their breasts every month and have regular mammograms.
The Bristol Breast Care Centre’s video can be seen at http://www.pinkglovedance.eu/videos/2015-videos/bristol-breast-care-centre.
Anyone can view the video and vote once per day between now and 26 October 2015. The winner of the competition will be announced on 30 October 2015.
