Bowel Cancer Awareness Month


Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer, the UK’s second biggest cancer killer. The good thing is that bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month (April 2019) is all about empowerment through knowledge. That's why being aware of the key symptoms is so important. If you know what to look out for and things just don’t feel right, arranging to have a chat with your GP can't hurt.

If you would like to support Bowel Cancer Awareness Month this April, visit the website for helpful suggestions and tips.
