ECCAM 2019

European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (ECCAM)

March 2019

In 2008 EuropaColon established the month of March as European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month as an annual awareness raising initiative. Together with our Associate and Affiliate network comprising of over 40 groups across more than 30 European countries, for the past 10 years we have looked at creating exciting and innovative ways of raising awareness on the importance of prevention and early diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

‚ÄčThis year, as EuropaColon has expanded into Digestive Cancers Europe, we launch the #MyBest10Seconds campaign on the 1st March 2019 for European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month! This campaign focuses on the importance of screening and how a simple 10 second test could save your life.

"370,000 EU citizens are diagnosed annually with colorectal cancer and 170,000 sadly die. Patients with early stage disease have a 90% chance of survival as compared to only 10% when detected at a late stage."

The campaign aims to educate and inspire members of the public online aged between 50 – 74 years old through direct publicising as well as indirectly through the younger generation, to prompt family members and future generations to be screened.‚Äč
