This month is dedicated to raising awareness of Australia’s second deadliest cancer. Sadly, Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world; 1 in 13 Australians will develop the disease in their lifetime, however, almost 99% of cases can be treated successfully when detected early! Raising awareness is important, as bowel cancer doesn’t discriminate, affecting men and women, young and old.
This year, Bowel Cancer Australia and Red Apple Day have set up a virtual bowel cancer ribbon that you can download to show your support! Head to their website here for more information – https://www.virtualbowelcancerribbon.org/
