Our bladders, Our stories. Let's illuminate the truth about Bladder Cancer.

Bladder Cancer Awareness Month 2022

May is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month!

This awareness month, we are calling on the power of community and storytelling to illuminate the realities of bladder cancer. Unfortunately, we know how terrible this disease can be. However, not enough people seem to understand. That's why this awareness month, we are sharing our stories.

Why is awareness important?

Bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men and within the top 10 most common cancers in the United States. 1

While bladder cancer can affect anyone, many people do not know the signs or symptoms until it is too late. By raising awareness, we can better educate the world to improve early diagnosis, encourage policymakers to increase access to services, fund research, and reduce the feelings of isolation or discrimination people face.
