Alliance for Cancer Prevention - Book reading of ‘So Much to Be Done’

The Alliance for Cancer Prevention in conjunction with Unison, From Pink to Prevention and the Breast Cancer Consortium are hosting the launch of ‘So Much to Be Done’, a book of writings by the late Barbara Brenner, with readings by her partner of 38 years Susie Lampert.

Barbara was an influential writer, activist and campaigner. She spent 15 years as the director of the organisation Breast Cancer Action based in San Francisco. Her passionate, insightful and challenging commentary on the commodified world of the pink ribbon and the resulting ‘pink washing’ of breast cancer changed the conversation around the issue forever.

The book reading takes place on 31 October at the Unison café London from 6-8pm, and is part of a series of events across the UK and the EU.

There will be a discussion after the reading which will raise questions as to why, throughout this and every October, there is so little focus on breast cancer prevention and the known environmental and occupational risk factors for the disease.

There are more details of From Pink to Prevention actions for October on the website here.
