The club had a very moving and inspirational talk from Louise Blyth on Bowel Cancer. Louise and her young family lost her husband last year to this terrible disease which is the second largest cancer killer in the UK. 42,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and the death rate is so high because people are either unaware of the symptoms or too embarrassed to talk about them. Louise explained the six major symptoms to look out for. The simple fact is that the earlier it is diagnosed, the greater a patient’s chance of survival. Louise is now working with the charity Beating Bowel Cancer in their fight to raise the awareness of the disease to try and reduce the number of deaths each year. Dawnbreakers fully support Louise in her work and our Charity Quiz in January will not only seek to raise funds for the cause but also to raise awareness amongst all of those present.
