Suggestion- Confetti Request

DancerDancer Bog Off Justine!Posts: 5,655 Part of The Furniture
It is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month according to https://www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/bowel-cancer-awareness-month-2019/ The #STOPbowelcancer is purple so could we possibly have purple confetti this month?

Information about bowel cancer:

Bowel Cancer is the second biggest UK’s killer cancer. This shouldn’t be the case since it is treatable and curable, especially when diagnosed at an early stage. Early diagnosis for Bowel Cancer and any other type of cancer saves lives. This is the reason why April has been set aside to educate the public and raise awareness of Bowel Cancer symptoms.

Some of the common symptoms of bowel cancer include:

  • Bleeding from the bottom and blood in poo
  • Persistent and unexplained change in bowel habit
  • Sudden and unexplained weight loss
  • Being easily fatigued with no obvious reason or cause
  • Pain or a lump in the tummy

    isn't purple for all things carers so YCAD and CAW (Carers awareness week) for the mix? 
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    Just sneaking here to say purple is  attucally  for pancreatic cancer and it’s royal blue for Colon ( bowel ) cancer :) 

    @Abigail is right we did have purple for YCAD  but no worries you weren’t to know and all the colours for cancers can get confusing 😂

    but it would be nice to change it to royal blue for maybe a week or so ? 
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Thanks. Yeah it is very confusing. Royal blue sounds amazing.

    This is a lovely idea Kasa! We could do a royal blue colour :) 

    I'll share this with the team and hopefully we can change the confetti cannon to for a few days this month. 

    If you have any other ideas for awareness days let us know.
