Bowel cancer takes 80 Australian lives each week, but did you know that if found early, 90% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated? If you’re over 50 and have received a free bowel cancer screening test in the mail, don’t ignore it. Do it. It could save our life.

New research from Cancer Council Victoria highlights how offering free movie toys with junk food influences what kids want to eat. We want to see free toys, stickers and other giveaways aimed at children restricted to healthy food. Let's help make it easier for parents encouraging their kids to eat healthy!

Last year we provided 114 families with a #free short #break away thanks to very generous people who donate time at their #HolidayHome each year.
We are looking for people to donate time at their #holiday homes. As an #accommodation provider, all you need to do is tell us when and how often you would like to donate your property and we organise the rest. #CancerSupport

Today’s #WorldHealthDay is shining a light on #depression. It's normal to feel upset, angry or anxious if you or someone you love is diagnosed with #cancer. Having someone to #talk to makes a huge difference to your mental #wellbeing during difficult times. You can chat to a supportive #CancerNurse like Katherine by calling 13 11 20, Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm.

We'd like to say thank you to the amazing #Wyndham community. Last weekend an impressive 1,944 people took part in #WyndhamRelayForLife, and due to daylight savings – roamed the track for an epic 25 hours!
An incredible $235,000 has been raised so far for #CancerCouncilVictoria – and we couldn’t be more grateful. We’re so lucky to have such dedicated and hardworking supporters helping us prevent cancer, empower patients and save lives.

#BowelCancer is the second most common #cancer in the #Victorian #Aboriginal community. Cancer Council Victoria is committed to closing the gap by working with the community to increase #BowelCancerScreening rates. One of the many projects we run is the comedy performance #Flushed with Denise McGuiness, which shares the importance of #BowelScreening using humour.

We’re calling on terminally ill patients and their family members to take part in a study exploring medical decision-making. Participation involves taking part in a face-to-face, telephone or Skype interview (around an hour), at a convenient time and location.

How have you been bold for change? Today we celebrated #IWD by hearing how some of our leaders and guest speaker Dr Jackie King from VicHealth have been involved in change that’s had an impact on #CancerControl and/or #GenderEquity. #BeBoldForChange #InternationalWomensDay
