Union J back our fight against Pancreatic Cancer

Posted by: on Aug 27, 2013 | No Comments

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Union J anymore, the cuties only went and showed their support for our campaign against pancreatic cancer by retweeting a link to our article about editor, Zara’s experience.

The band’s official account retweeted Zara and while the lovely Josh also retweeted her, he also put out a tweet from himself linking to the article.

So far the tweets have gained almost 1000 retweets and hundreds of favourites. This is a huge success in spreading the word in order to raise awareness of the disease.

At Gossipdrip we want to raise awareness of the illness and encourage people to sign an e-petition to help gain more funding into research about pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer has a five year survival rate of just 3% which hasn’t improved in  over 40 years. If you want to find out more, read Zara and contributor Florence’s article here. You can also check out the e-petition here.
