Bladder Cancer Awareness Month 2023

What a month!

We can’t believe how fast Bladder Cancer Awareness Month flew by! It has been an exhilarating and rewarding journey. May was bursting with energy and enthusiasm, and we’re thrilled to share all the fantastic highlights with you.

We learned

Throughout May, our focus was on educating and raising awareness about different types of bladder cancer. Each week, we delved into a specific disease state, providing valuable information on treatment options, and we also offered patient stories, videos, podcasts, webinars, and much more.

We walked

May was not only about knowledge and awareness; we also had the privilege of organizing the Walks to End Bladder Cancer in 15 incredible cities.
