CottonSofts is the proud primary sponsor of BCNZ because:
New Zealand has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, over 3,000 diagnosed yearly and approximately 1,200 losing their lives annually. It’s a statistic BCNZ would like to not have, and a thing we could live without as a country.
On Facebook, Twitter and / or Instagram, post this message and encourage your followers to share it: Every year, bowel cancer kills 1,200 Kiwis. Buy CottonSofts or donate to beatbowelcancer.org.nz and #Showyoucare
Only 100,000 specially marked packs will be produced*
The charity aims to provide clear, up-to-date information about the disease, symptoms, what to do if diagnosed and treatments.
The long term partnership with BCNZ will see a collaborative approach to projects, including spreading the awareness message during the charity’s 2013 Bowel Cancer Awareness Week (3-9 June 2013) and future events. Cottonsoft shares BCNZ’s aim to raise awareness of the disease with frank discussion, education and drive to improve the screening process across the country.
The statistics on bowel cancer in New Zealand alone are startling:
