The team at bClear Communications are sporting their football shirts and donating to help raise money and awareness of bowel cancer. 46 people die per day from the disease, making it the second most common cause of cancer death in the UK according to Cancer Research UK.
Contributions to Cancer Research means the mortality rates of bowel cancer have fallen by 30% in the last three decades.
Legendary football player Bobby Moore came up quickly through the ranks of West Ham, earning the role as captain of the England team by age 23. He continued to be an unstoppable force in football, leading England to victory in 1966 world cup. Cancer doesn’t discriminate, the country mourned as Moore died from bowel cancer, age just 51.
Bobby’s widow, Stephanie Moore, began the Bobby Moore Fund to help raise awareness of disease and the importance to spot symptoms early. In the last 29 years, the fund has raised over £29 million.
Speaking to Cancer Research UK Stephanie Moore says: “I am very pleased to say that real progress has been made since Bobby died of the disease and the contribution of our supporters has been fundamental to achieving this.” To donate please click here.
