June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month
1 June 2017
Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is an annual initiative of Bowel Cancer Australia running throughout the month of June (1 – 30 June each year), to raise public awareness of a disease that claims the lives of 80 Australians every week.
Bowel Cancer is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer.
Bowel Cancer Awareness Month has a positive message – saving lives through early detection – as bowel cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.
From the city to the country, from the home to the workplace, individuals, loved ones, health professionals, schools and businesses help to spread the word. Bowel Cancer Awareness Champions donate their time, services and creativity. Many also kindly make monetary donations to help Bowel Cancer Australia with our work.
Without the support of all the wonderful individuals and organisations raising funds and awareness, Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and the work of Bowel Cancer Australia would not be possible.
