In May 2013, CottonSofts became a proud sponsor and supporter of Beat Bowel Cancer Aotearoa (BBCA). The charity, founded in 2010 by a group of people affected by bowel cancer, with the support of clinicians, is committed to improving bowel cancer awareness among the general public and health professionals. The charity aims to provide clear, up-to-date information about the disease, symptoms, what to do if diagnosed and treatments.
