Sharon and Kelly Osbourne are going pink!

According to Contact Music, the mother-daughter duo will be a part of the Pink Army as a part of Cancer Research UK‘s Race for Life! They had a special photo shoot to promote the charity’s fundraising events coming this summer, rocking pink war stripes and other accessories. Sharon herself beat colon cancer in 2002 and then underwent a double mastectomy in 2012 after being diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene.

”I’m honored to be supporting Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life this year. As a cancer survivor myself, I know it takes all your strength and the support of your family and friends to overcome this disease,” Sharon stated. “I’m asking every woman – mother, daughter, grandmother, sister and auntie in the UK to step forward and unite to defy cancer. Let’s show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink.”

”After watching my mum go through colon cancer and the recent news that I’m carrying the BRCA1 gene, just like my mum, I wanted to show my support for Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life,” Kelly said. “By signing up to your local Race for Life event, every pound you raise will help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.” The fashion designer added: ”So whether you walk, jog or charge, let’s unite so we can one day end the suffering cancer causes millions of people around the world.” Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life hosts a variety of women-only events, raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer.

It’s great that Sharon and Kelly are a part of this campaign! I think that their story can really move and inspire people and bring awareness,  not only in the UK but around the world.
