June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month. Bowel cancer claims the lives of 101 Australians every week (5,255 people a year) – but it’s one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.
While the risk of bowel cancer increases significantly with age, the disease doesn’t discriminate, affecting men and women, young and old.
Red Apple Day (Wednesday, 15 June 2022) is Bowel Cancer Australia’s Annual Giving Day, when Australians are encouraged to support the vital work of the charity.
