The Australian Taxation Office in Canberra got behind Bowel Cancer Australia and Red Apple Day to help raise awareness.
 
“Our Red Apple Day display and fundraiser at ATO National Office went really well. We handed out all the flyers as staff came in for the day and sold all the pins by the end of lunch. We also had flyers on all the notice boards and at the top of the escalators as you enter the building. On the day everyone was really supportive and lots of people asked questions about tests. Unfortunately we did hear stories about people who had lost loved ones to bowel cancer and at a young age” said Michelle.

June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – an annual public awareness and fundraising initiative of Bowel Cancer Australia.

“I look at my partner and think that it’s so unfair he is being put through this, he is the best daddy and husband there is. I wonder why him? Why our family? How can I find the strength to help him through it?”

As one of Bowel Cancer Australia’s Bowel Care Nurses, this is the type of heart-wrenching experience I hear each and every day. It is the hidden impact of bowel cancer our team is working so hard to change, but we need your help.

A national study of Australians diagnosed with bowel cancer – the country’s second biggest cancer killer – reveals three quarters of respondents presented to their GP with symptoms, yet one in five felt their symptoms were not taken seriously.
 
Bowel Cancer Australia chief executive Mr Julien Wiggins said the findings from the My Bowel Cancer...My Voice survey, released to coincide with Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, point to the need to ensure all Australians make symptoms a priority and GPs facilitate timely investigations and diagnosis.
 
“We know Australians hold GPs in high regard, however people need to feel confident knowing their symptoms or concerns will be taken seriously,” Mr Wiggins said.
