Bladder Cancer Awareness Month

Each May, Bladder Cancer Awareness Month is a time for those in the bladder cancer community to join together to increase awareness of the disease and raise much-needed funds for bladder cancer research as well as patient education and support. It’s also a time for patients, caregivers and loved ones to share their stories and honor those who have been impacted by this terrible disease.

We celebrated Bladder Cancer Awareness Month is some special ways through our Virtual Walk to End Bladder Cancer on May 1, 2021, our Ask the Experts event on May 26 and finalist voting for our Beacon of Hope award.

Walk With Us

We kicked off Bladder Cancer Awareness Month on May 1, 2021 with our Virtual Walk to End Bladder Cancer.

Thanks to all of our wonderful supporters, we exceeded our fundraising goal this year and we will continue to expand our programs and services to help bladder cancer patients and those who love them.

Ask the Experts

May 26 featured our first-ever, virtual Ask the Experts event.  Dr. Kent Mouw of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Dr. Sarah Psutka of the University of Washington, two of the leading bladder cancer doctors in the United States, answered your questions for nearly an hour.

Help spread the word

More than 83,000 in the United States are expected to be diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2021.  There are more than 600,000 people living with the disease in the U.S., yet far too many people learn what bladder cancer is at the time of diagnosis.
