June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.
June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - a Bowel Cancer Australia initiative raising awareness of Australia's second deadliest cancer and funds for the leading community-funded charity dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and the best care for everyone affected by bowel cancer.
Bowel cancer claims the lives of 103 Australians every week (5,375 people a year) - but it's one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.
While the risk of bowel cancer increases significantly with age, the disease doesn't discriminate, affecting men and women, young and old.
300 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer this week (15,604 people a year). A highlight of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is Red Apple Day (Wednesday, 17 June 2020), We are inspired by the work of Bowel Cancer Australia and want to support them by raising money as part of our participation in Red Apple Day.
The more people that know about Bowel Cancer Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
