Bottom Lines June 2020
Welcome to our Awareness Month edition- Every day, on average, 8 Kiwis will be diagnosed with bowel cancer, and 3 people will die from it.
June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, a Bowel Cancer NZ initiative, raising awareness of a cancer that kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined. And it’s the reason we hold our annual MOVE YOUR BUTT challenge in June – the more people we can get moving, the more awareness there will be of bowel cancer.
New medical advisor joins our charity – Dr Dragan Damianovich (MD, FRACP) is a medical oncologist and gastrointestinal cancer specialist who consults at both Auckland Hospital and Auckland Oncology. He’s deeply passionate about getting funding for bowel cancer treatments, which is why he’s joined Bowel Cancer NZ in an advocacy role.View newsletter
