Bottom Lines June 2018
It is June Awareness Month, and we need your help to raise public awareness of a disease that claims the lives of more than 100 New Zealanders each month, as well as raising much needed funds to continue our vital lifesaving work.
As part of the June Awareness Month, you may have seen our campaign Never Too Young. Every year, more than 300 people under 50 are diagnosed with bowel cancer, nearly as many as the national road toll. Unfortunately, younger patients are often diagnosed when it is too late for effective treatment. The problem? They can be considered too young, too healthy, too fit and remain undiagnosed for months or even years before presenting with advanced bowel cancer.
Also find out about our trek the Great Wall of China to raise funds for Bowel Cancer New Zealand. The Hike for Health brings together supporters from various New Zealand and Australian health organisations for an adventure trek to the Great Wall of China.View newsletter
