This April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and Millwall are joining other clubs and players, managers and personalities from the world of professional football in support of the annual Know the Score campaign.
The initiative, which was started by former Millwall keeper Nicky Johns, who tragically lost his son Stephen to bowel cancer in 2008, is now in its seventh year. This campaign also marks seven years since the popular former Exeter, Yeovil and Hereford striker, Adam Stansfield, died from bowel cancer at the age of 31.
Throughout April clubs, charities and governing bodies, including the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) and League Managers Association (LMA), are uniting to raise awareness of bowel cancer signs and symptoms. It is the second biggest cause of cancer death in the UK and research has shown early diagnosis is key to survival. Thousands of 'Star of Hope' badges will be visible in support of Know The Score.
