We’re seeking people living with or beyond young-onset bowel cancer, and their loved ones, to share their experiences and join our social media photograph campaign this Never Too Young Awareness Week (3-9 June 2019).
There is a different Never Too Young Awareness Week theme each year, and we release a set of free downloadable resources to match.
This year's downloadable sign has a space for you to write the age of diagnosis, or the age at which your loved one was diagnosed.
Register to become a #Never2Young Champion and help us spread the word that you’re never too young to have bowel cancer this Never Too Young Awareness Week.
We'll send you an email with further details on how you can get involved, as well as a copy of the 2019 Never Too Young Awareness Week sign for you to share this 3-9 June 2019.
SAVE THE DATE: Never Too Young Awareness Week
WHAT: A dedicated week (3-9 June 2019) during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month honouring people who have been diagnosed with bowel cancer under the age of 50 and are now living with or beyond the disease, as well as honouring the memory of those who have passed away from young-onset bowel cancer. Sharing photos and stories to raise community awareness of bowel cancer and provide support to young people diagnosed with the disease.
WHEN: Held annually in June each year.
WHY: 1,413 Australians under the age of 50 are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, and that number is growing. We’re not okay with that. You’re not either. Let’s shout it out and shake things up.
WHO: If you are living with or beyond young-onset bowel cancer or are a loved one - we’d love you to join our community of #Never2Young Champions, and to encourage your friends, family and everyone else you know (and maybe even people you don’t) to support Never Too Young Awareness Week too.
