May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month!

Every May, we commemorate the month with public awareness programs, increased education, and a greater emphasis on strengthening the bladder cancer community overall.  Raising public awareness is the first step towards finding a cure.

Awareness begins with BCAN’s AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer bringing together survivors, loved ones and medical professionals in their local communities.

We need your help.  Join BCAN this May and all year long to bring bladder cancer awareness to the forefront.  Share your story.  Talk about your symptoms and your cancer journey.  You will not only increase awareness of the disease, but you could help save a life.

Take Action

BCAN advocates can share their firsthand experiences and encourage legislators to support bladder cancer research.  You can help at home by contacting your local representatives and telling them that bladder cancer will no longer be ignored.  Join our mailing list to make sure you are included in our advocacy updates.
