Raising awareness during Bowel Cancer Awareness month

The month of June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.

Unfortunately this past week has been a very difficult one for my family as we lost a family member to this horrible disease. So I felt it necessary to do my bit; raise awareness of bowel cancer and spread the word on the importance of early detection.

Bowel Cancer Australia encourage you to join the Bowel Movement as it could save a life…

  • TALK
    Talk withย family and friends about signs, symptoms and testing.


  • TEST
    Everyone over the age of 50 years is highly encouraged to take a bowel cancer screening test.


  • TELL
    So that everyone becomes aware, it’s important to share your family’s medical history with your close relatives.

Also, why not have a read of blog post ‘7 habits for a healthy gut this Bowel Cancer Awareness month’ over at Scoop Nutrition.
