June is Bowel Cancer Awareness month.

Bowel cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.

Bowel Cancer New Zealand is a nationwide, patient-led organisation committed to reducing the impact of bowel cancer on our community through awareness, education, support and research.

Visit their website and Facebook page for online support and information; there’s also the ‘Never too young’ website. Read about bowel cancer, find out what Bowel Cancer NZ does, and what you can do to help.

If you have any questions or concerns, talk to your doctor or your practice nurse.
