Again this year I am supporting Beating Bowel Cancer by growing a full on beard for Decembeard. This year the theme is ‘Beards taking on bowel cancer’ and as well as raising as much money as possible they are particularly looking to reach out to people aged 50 plus (the age group at risk of bowel cancer) to make people aware of the condition and understand the symptoms. As we all know, men find it more difficult to go to their doctor with symptoms, I and they, want to break down this taboo too. The money that I am raising will go towards Beating Bowel Cancer supporting more patients and families affected and to help raise awareness of the UK’s second biggest cancer killer. Below is a button that links to my Justgiving page if you would like to sponsor me and help with this great cause.
