Local AM Supports Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

Paul Davies, Assembly Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire is supporting Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer’s campaign to help raise awareness of bowel cancer symptoms, as part of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month this April.

In April alone 188 people in Wales will be diagnosed with bowel cancer and 77 people will die of the disease. It’s the nation’s second biggest cancer killer. However, it shouldn’t be. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. Nearly everyone diagnosed at the earliest stage will survive bowel cancer but this drops significantly as the disease develops. Early diagnosis really does save lives, but only around 15% of people are diagnosed at the earliest stage.

Mr Davies met with branch members to discuss the delivery of autism services locally and how introducing an Autism Bill could have the potential to better the lives of people living with autism in Wales.

He said, “It was a pleasure to once again meet with members of the local NAS branch and listen to their views on ways we can improve service delivery across Pembrokeshire. I have been working to create an Autism Bill, which is currently out for consultation and it was important to hear the group’s views on the Bill. We have a real opportunity to work with the autistic community in Wales to deliver a first-class piece of legislation and it’s great that the group are so supportive. I look forward to continuing to work with the branch and others across Wales throughout the legislative process to create a Bill that is as effective as possible.”
