April is bowel cancer awareness month

It’s a fantastic annual opportunity to educate your business, organisation or community group about the disease by joining us for a free virtual awareness talk.

All pre-booked talks will be in the English language and will take place via Zoom. Why raising awareness is so important Bowel cancer is currently the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer. Nearly 43,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, and more than 16,800 people die annually from the disease.

However, it doesn’t have to be this way, as bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially when caught early. That’s why we’re dedicated to raising awareness through our volunteer-led awareness programme.

What the talk will cover

The virtual talk will last around 30-45 minutes and will be delivered by one of our trained volunteers. They’ll cover:

  • Signs and symptoms – learn the most common symptoms of bowel cancer
  • Risks – gain an awareness of the risk factors associated with bowel cancer
  • Bowel screening – learn about the NHS bowel screening programme and the importance of taking part You’ll also have the opportunity to ask the volunteer any questions you might have.

Many of our volunteers have personal experiences of bowel cancer, and so have a great deal of knowledge and wisdom to share.
