Deakin raises breast cancer awareness

26 November 2013

Goalkeeper Ian Deakin is hoping to spread awareness of breast cancer, after learning that his mother is fighting against the illness.

The 26-year-old told "West Coast goalkeeping contacted me about a month and a half ago and asked me to wear their pink promotional gloves for a season, which will help raise awareness for breast cancer. ‘Pink is the cure’ is the logo.

“It is something which is close to my heart, with my mum going through breast cancer at the minute. 

"We’re battling on. It’s important to raise awareness both to men and women," he added.
