During Stomal Therapy Awareness Week (12th-18th June) events were or­ganised at St George Public Hospital by the Stomal Therapy team to help raise awareness and have some fun along the way. These events were a success.
"We started the week with a bake off where the creative baking skills of staff were displayed and an enjoyable afternoon tea was held. All proceeds from the day were donated to Bowel Cancer Australia".  
"The big event of the week was Bowel Cancer Austral­ia's "Big Bowel" at St George Public Hospital. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen and to all those who came along on the day to support it".
"We had 417 people walk through the Big Bowel, including staff, visi­tors, our fellow colleagues at St George Private, the local day care centre and many others".
"Although some had to be persuaded to walk through at first it was en­joyed by all".
"It was an abso­lute pleasure to host such an amazing and important pub­lic health awareness event and hope that we were able to do our bit in raising awareness of bowel cancer" said Daniela Levido, Stomal Therapy CNC at St George Public Hospital.
Thank you very much to the team at St George Public Hospital for their continued support, we greatly appreciate it.
