A highlight of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is Red Aussie Apple Day (Wednesday, 18 June 2014), where Australians are encouraged to support the vital work of Bowel Cancer Australia through the purchase of a $2 apple pin.
The day is proudly supported by Aussie Apples.
The 'apple pin' symbolises our bowel cancer message.
The outline of the apple logo appears as an abstract of a human colon.
The small hole in the apple is caused by a worm. If detected early and removed, the worm is unable to infect and kill the otherwise healthy apple.
It's the same with people - if bowel cancer is detected early through screening it can be removed and people can continue to enjoy a healthy life.
Apples are also a nutritious source of dietary fibre. So this Red Aussie Apple Day, do something good for yourself and help us too. Aussies need two serves of fruit a day, why not make one of them an Aussie apple? Aussie apples are supporters of Bowel Cancer Australia.
