The annual Let's Beat Bowel Cancer Golf Classic at Kingston Heath on Tuesday 18 October 2016.
This is what we know about bowel cancer.
Every week bowel cancer kills almost 100 Australian men and women – that’s around one Australian every two hours. We know that bowel cancer is the biggest internal cancer affecting both Australian men and women and that Australia has one of the highest incidences of bowel cancer in the world. We also know incidence rates continue to rise and that the risk of bowel cancer increases with age.
We also know though that this is a cancer we can do something about. There are real steps that can be taken to significantly reduce the impact of bowel cancer on Australian men and women. We know that 90% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated if found early. Currently, fewer than 40% are detected early.
Since our humble beginnings 15 years ago, Let’s Beat Bowel Cancer (LBBC) has been unwaivering in our efforts to do all we can to reduce the impact of bowel cancer for all Australians.
We remain committed to raising public awareness about the importance of early detection and we continue to invest in research that helps to reduce or eliminate suffering for bowel cancer patients. With Cabrini being a leading bowel cancer treatment centre in Victoria, LBBC is uniquely positioned to not just treat bowel cancer, but to be a significant player on the frontline fight to beat this insidious disease.
The LBBC Golf Classic was created to drive fundraising for LBBC’s programs and today remains one of the cornerstones of our fundraising efforts.
Driven by our hardworking fundraising and golf day Committees LBBC has been fortunate to receive outstanding support from our loyal and passional supporters and corporate sponsors. This support has been vital in ensuring we can not only continue our programs but ensure their ongoing expansion and improvement.
We work hard to minimise our costs in order to maximise the investment of our supporters and corporate sponsors. There is still much work to be done however, which is why your support is so vital.
The LBBC Golf Classic is an outstanding event providing not just a great day of golf and corporate hospitality, but a genuine opportunity to make a real difference for those impacted by bowel cancer.
We are delighted to invite you to join us.
