We have all been affected by bowel cancer in some way and know the devastating effect it can have on individuals and their families.
That’s why we’re supporting Beating Bowel Cancer’s Lift the Lid campaign this month.
April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and the Lift the Lid campaign is encouraging everybody to get over the embarrassment surrounding the disease by simply talking about it.
Whether you tell someone about your own experience, inspire someone to learn about the symptoms or encourage someone who is worried to talk to their doctor, that conversation could be lifesaving.
So we’ll be supporting Beating Bowel Cancer throughout April and we hope you will too.
