Bobby Moore Fund update

The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK is continuing the fight against bowel cancer with April being the club charity's annual awareness month.

The Fund was set up by Stephanie Moore MBE following the death of her husband Bobby Moore from bowel cancer in February 1993, aged just 51. As the second highest cause of cancer death in the UK, bowel cancer statistics remain frightening, with 44 people dying from the disease every day.

Since Bobby died in 1993 from bowel cancer, the number of people who have also died from the disease in this country would be the equivalent of filling the Boleyn Ground more than seven times.

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, so make sure you know the symptoms.

If you notice any of the following and they last longer than four to six weeks, please consult your doctor:

• Bleeding from the bottom without any obvious reason

• A persistent change in bowel habit to looser or more frequent bowel movements

• Tummy pain, especially if severe

• A lump in your tummy

These symptoms are unlikely to be caused by cancer, but it is better to see your doctor to make sure. For more information please visit
