Liver cancer awareness month
October is Liver Cancer Awareness Month, which is a chance to raise vital awareness and funds to improve early detection of the disease as well as showing support for people affected by liver cancer and remember loved ones.
Liver cancer rates have more than doubled in 30 years and every year 6,000 people are diagnosed in the UK. Sadly, just 13% of people diagnosed with liver cancer will survive for five years or more.
For over a year, the pandemic has led to delayed GP appointments and reduced access to specialist care. Now more than ever, we need to raise awareness to find those at risk to improve early diagnosis.
Your support this October could help us to get closer to a breakthrough in early diagnosis and put a much-needed spotlight on the disease.
Take a look below to see how you can make a difference this month.
