One of Australia’s most successful models, Lara Bingle, is setting her sights on tackling Australia’s second biggest cancer killer, working closely with Bowel Cancer Australia, as an Ambassador.
Losing her father, Graham, at a relatively young age to bowel cancer, Lara has chosen to do what she can to raise awareness about early detection of what is a preventable and curable disease.
Lara features in Bowel Cancer Australia’s latest awareness campaign, Love My Family, which encourages people to talk about their bowel cancer risk with loved ones.
Over 14,000 Australians are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year and it claims the lives of 80 people in our country every week.
This disease is common enough to affect someone you love, or even yourself. Having relatives with bowel cancer increases your risk of developing the disease. The good news is that bowel cancer is treatable if detected early.
Love your parents, your family, your friends and your life by taking steps to avoid bowel cancer. Share the importance of bowel cancer awareness with those you love to help save lives.
Look after the ones you love.
