Bladder Cancer Awareness Month 2021

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 celebrate 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

While we kick off Bladder Cancer Awareness Month on May 1, 2021 with our Virtual Walk to End Bladder Cancer, it’s not too late to be part of the fun.

If you cannot walk on May 1, we encourage you to choose a time and date that work for you and join the hundreds of other walkers who are working to end this terrible disease.

Registration is free and everyone who raises $100 or more by May 31, 2021 will receive the 2021 Walk T-shirt.

Ask the Experts

Join us on May 26 for our first-ever, FREE virtual Ask the Experts event.  Dr. Kent Mouw of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Dr. Sarah Psutka of the University of Washington are two of the leading bladder cancer doctors in the United States, and registrants get the opportunity to ask them questions! The event will be held on Zoom and you can attend on your computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Both doctors will be answering questions from the event attendees, so be sure to sign up early and have your questions ready.  Registration is free but required.

Help spread the word about bladder cancer

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.

You can help us raise awareness of the disease just by using your favorite social media platform like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  This page contains dozens of high quality images that you can download and share.
