JD Parties are pleased to announce that we have chosen The Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Appeal as our nominated charity of choice for the Venetian Carnivale party at Tatton Park, Cheshire this year.
The Genesis Appeal is the only charity in the UK entirely dedicated to the prevention of breast cancer. Right across Europe 1 in 10 women will develop breast cancer at some time during their life. Here in the UK the charity Cancer Research UK has estimated that the risk may now be as high as 1 in 8 women. Our own expert, Professor Gareth Evans advises that the true rate in the UK is still actually around 1 in 10. Professor Evans’ reasons for this are:-
â¢ The 1 in 8 rate only applies to women who live beyond 85 years of age
â¢ It includes women who have only had pre-cancer changes
â¢ It may double count some women who have had breast cancer twice.
Whichever statistic you take, the aim of the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Appeal is to turn things around until we see the rate fall to 1 in 11, then 1 in 12 and so on. Our ultimate goal is to stop the disease and make breast cancer preventable for everyone. Help them make 1 in 10, none in 10 by visiting their website here >>
We will be donating the proceeds from our Charity Fun Casino and Silent Auction at Venetian Carnivale, Tatton Park this year.
