This week is Bowel Cancer Awareness Week in New Zealand. Did you know that more people get bowel cancer in New Zealand than any other cancer? And it is the second highest cause of cancer death?
Probably not because no one talks about this asshole of a disease, mind the pun. Well, I am, because I have spent the past two and a half years watching my darling Mum fight this very cancer.
Approximately 2700 people get bowel cancer in New Zealand each year and of that about 1500 die. My mum was one of the lucky ones. We need a cure. Do a good deed for the day and donate here - and help find a cure for bowel cancer.
