BBC Radio 4 Appeal
Tune in and support our BBC Radio 4 Appeal
We are delighted that we secured a BBC Radio 4 Appeal.
Broadcaster and our patron Charlene White touchingly presents our
Appeal and recounts how her mother died of the disease and the
effect it had on her family. Charlene wished they'd been aware of
the support of our specialist nurses.
Our nurses spend many hours talking to patients and their
families about bowel cancer. Our callers have all sorts of reasons
for phoning our helpline. Some want to know more about signs and
symptoms; others are interested in the screening programme or about
treatment and management of the disease.
Whatever it is, our nurses ensure no-one has to deal with bowel
cancer alone. We are here to help. We offer support and
information to patients and their families to help them deal with
what they are facing. Our ambition is to double the number of
people our nurses can reach.
What can you do?
£25 pays for one of our specialist nurses to support a patient
or carer. Supporting our work will go to fund another specialist
nurse so we can double the number of people they will help.
When can you listen?
You can listen by heading to the Radio 4 Appeal website.
As Charlene says: 'Although my mum died, Bowel Cancer UK's
continuing fight against the disease means that you, your relatives
and friends may not have to.
We can't do this without you. We hope you can support our work
and together we can save even more lives from bowel cancer.
