Raise awareness of Bladder Cancer. Survival rates are going down because of lack of awareness of the disease. It is the only cancer ignored unlike its wealthier cousins.

It is important because lives can be saved with a proper test. Lives are lost because blood in urine is treated as infection and urine samples do not test for cancer. They test for urine infection give antibiotics but cancer still grows sometimes until it is too late. Many lives could be saved and operations avoided - which are costly - not just the operation but all  commodities needed after the operation. It is the most costly cancer in terms of surgery and maintenance on the NHS! I am a survivor and have had excellent treatment. Yet l think something needs to be done in terms of awareness ie the splendid breast cancer campaign which is saving so many lives. Go to it!!
