Our wish…. a future where more families can stay together for longer and celebrate special occasions, like Christmas, together.
Help us to grant more Wishes for bowel cancer patients and their families in 2018
In a bid to get people talking about the cancer that will affect one in 11 Australian men in their lifetime, Bowel Cancer Australia is encouraging Aussies everywhere to get chin-spired and sign-up for Decembeard® this December at www.decembeard.org.au.
Now in its fifth year, Decembeard® is a hair–raising fundraiser that encourages men to grow a beard, raise funds and help beat bowel cancer. Women and children can also get involved and show their support by making or faking a beard, hosting a fundraiser, or by donating directly.
More than 8,000 Australian men are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year.
In its early stages it is a disease that often has no obvious symptoms; however, any of the following may be suggestive of bowel cancer:
This December, the manly art of maintaining a beard could help save the life of someone you know. Beard up and help us battle cancer before it begins and raise awareness with Decembeard.
Decembeard - What is it?
More than 8,000 Australian men are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, around 560 of those men are under the age of 50.
It is a disease that affects men of all ages, and one of the many reasons we’ve dedicated the month of December to encouraging men around the country to grow out their chin curls and help us beat bowel cancer.
