Raising Bowel Cancer Awareness
Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is an annual initiative of Bowel Cancer Australia running throughout the month of June (1-30 June), to raise public awareness of a disease that claims the lives of 77 Australians every week.
Bowel cancer is the third most common type of newly diagnosed cancer in Australia affecting both men and women almost equally and is Australia's second biggest cancer killer after lung cancer.
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, families, 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.
So, to everyone who has in any way got involved with Bowel Cancer Awareness Month over the past years, please know that your support means a lot to us at Bowel Cancer Australia.
We're a relatively small team, so the more people joining the bowel movement with us, the better!
