Could you be a Cancer Council Victoria Community Champion?

Cancer Council Victoria and Frankston City Council are looking for community champions. Bowel cancer is the second largest cancer killer in Australia, and most are preventable! You could improve the health of people in your own circles by becoming a champion.

Community Champions will receive a $50 Coles/Myer voucher!

What is a champion?  
A good role model is someone who shares information that could make a difference to bowel cancer and current screening rates in the Frankston area

Anyone can participate!
And any level of involvement is welcome - you might be able to have informal conversations with friends, family, work colleagues or people in your circles about bowel cancer and screening, or maybe you can provide support and encourage people you know to follow up if they get a positive result!

What is Required
Champions are asked to attend 4 meetings in Frankston, from July to November. You will find out more about bowel cancer, the screening test and then learn communication skills and support strategies that you can use.

Bowel Cancer Test for over 50's 

  • Do you know that bowel cancer is the second largest cancer killer in Australia today?
  • Do you know Frankston has one of the lowest screening rates in the state?
  • Do you know that most bowel cancer can be prevented with early detection?

The moral of the story is get tested!

Cancer Council Victoria and Frankston City Council  have come together to encourage senior residents of Frankston to complete the test. Please encourage anyone you know between the ages of 50 and 74 to ring the Cancer Council on 13 11 20 and request a free kit in the mail.
