This month is Blue September and it’s all about raising awareness around men’s health and trying to tackle the fact that men are more likely to develop and die of cancer than women and that men are less likely to discuss their personal health concerns with family, friends or their GP.
Blue September is a fun way of delivering the message to men to take better care of their health in an aim to significantly reduce the numbers of men dying of cancer in Ireland every year. We lose too many of our fathers, brothers, sons and friends to prostate, testicular, bowel and other cancers every year.
Blue September Ireland will raise awareness of bowel, lung, prostate and testicular cancer, while fundraising for Irish charities; Cancer Care West, The Mater Foundation and The Mercy Hospital Foundation.
LEGHOWNEY COUNTRY MARKET are supporting this awareness and fundraising too.
