Raising Awareness

Emily Staff (Marketing and Comms

Were you diagnosed with Lynch syndrome and would like to help us raise awareness?

We’re looking for people to help us raise awareness of Lynch syndrome - a genetic condition that can increase the risk of bowel cancer to up to 80%. There are an estimated 175,000 people who have Lynch syndrome in the UK but 95% don't know they have it, due to a lack of systematic testing.

If you've been diagnosed with Lynch syndrome and have (or had) bowel cancer and would be happy to raise awareness of the condition in the media, on our website and on social media, please get in touch with Emily or Fran at press@beatingbowelcancer.org . Don’t forget to include details of your bowel cancer diagnosis and your family history.

Many thanks
