REGISTER YOUR SUPORT FOR THE MIGHTY TIGER FLIGHTS – HERVEY BAY TO MELBOURNE

May 18th, 2010

Hello Fraser Coast Friends – of the Tiger

Congratulations to each and every one of you for the obvious passion you hold for the establishment of a Melbourne – Hervey Bay Air Service.


We have certainly caught the “Eye of the Tiger” and at our meeting last week with the Managing Director, she was somewhat impressed with the vigour of voting for the Fraser Coast route!

But, there is much more work to do.  We have their attention, and I do believe that we are on a positive path, BUT, Tiger is a low cost airline – which means that all marketing dollars and support come from sources other than their own!  Fraser Coast Regional Council, Tourism Queensland, Fraser Coast South Burnet Tourism Board and Industry partners will all be asked to contribute to a marketing campaign if we are successful, but every resident of this community and every interested party that wants this service can play a part in securing this route by participating in our own low cost campaign.  By building our own data base of people that will use this service, we have a powerful negotiating tool when we go back to Tiger for further discussion. This data base will not be released to the Airline, unless a route is secured.

All you need to do is circulate this email with the fervour of the last, and ask everyone to register on the following link:

BOWEL CANCER AND YOUR EMPLOYEES

May 17th, 2010

BOWEL C ANCER AND THE FACTS

While bowel cancer doesn’t always get a lot of press, the facts around this disease are alarming:

–          Bowel cancer is the most commonly diagnosed internal cancer in Australia for men and woman combined.

–          One in 20 Australians will develop the disease in their lifetime.

–          80 Australians die from bowel cancer every week.

However, the good news is that bowel cancer is one of the most preventable cancers if detected early.

As an employer of Queenslanders you are in an ideal position to promote the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer within your workplace.

There are some very quick and simple things your workplace can do to be involved.

1) Send a Bowel Cancer Awareness Week email to your staff during the Week

2) Add a bowel cancer prevention and early detection message on employees pay slips for the week or month

3) Install a bowel cancer awareness screen saver on computers for the week or month

4) Display bowel cancer posters and pamphlets in common areas around your workplace

5) Book an information session for your employees

All the necessary information for these activities has been attached for your convenience, along with a short evaluation form. A resource order form has also been attached should you wish to order any of the Program’s free promotional materials.

For assistance in coordinating any of the above activities, please contact your local Queensland Bowel Cancer Screening Program Health Promotion Officer, (Insert Name), on (Insert details).

In addition you can contact your Queensland Bowel Cancer Screening Program Health Promotion Officer anytime throughout the year to discuss opportunities to implement the workplace bowel cancer education program in your workplace.

Thank you kindly for your support in addressing this significant disease.

How much do YOU know about Bowel Cancer?

TRUE / FALSE

  1. Only men get bowel cancer.
  2. Only people with a family history of bowel cancer need be concerned.
  3. There’s nothing you can do to prevent getting bowel cancer.
  4. If you feel healthy and don’t have any symptoms then you don’t need to be tested.

If you answered FALSE to ALL of these then congratulations!  You’re doing well!

If you answered TRUE to any of these then you need to brush up on your bowel facts!

Read on for more information on each of these statements.

  1. Only men get bowel cancer.

Although there is a higher incidence in men, women DO get bowel cancer.  In fact, 1 in 14 women will be diagnosed with bowel cancer before the age of 85. This compares to 1 in 10 for men.

In Queensland in 2006 (the latest statistics available), 2741 people were diagnosed with bowel cancer, 1491 of these were male and 1250 of these were female (Cancer Council Queensland, 2008).

  1. Only people with a family history of bowel cancer need be concerned.

Only around 5% of bowel cancers are attributed to a family history. Age and lifestyle choices are the main contributing factors. However, if you do have a family history of bowel cancer, it is important that you speak with your GP.

  1. There’s nothing you can do to prevent getting bowel cancer.

While you can never completely eliminate your risk of getting bowel cancer, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce the risk.  It is estimated that up to 75% of bowel cancers could be prevented through leading a healthy lifestyle.  Things like maintaining a healthy body weight, eating well, being active, limiting your alcohol intake and not smoking all contribute to reducing your risk of bowel cancer.

  1. If you feel healthy and don’t have any symptoms then you don’t need to be tested.

Bowel cancer often doesn’t show any symptoms until it is further advanced.  ‘Screening’ is about testing people with no symptoms who ‘feel healthy’ to find early signs of disease before it causes harm.  Bowel cancer is actually one of the most treatable cancers if detected early and can be prevented with regular screening.

The Australian Government is currently inviting men and women turning 50, 55 or 65 between 2008 and 2010 to participate in bowel cancer screening. Invitations, which include a simple screening test known as a Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT), are being sent directly to people in the mail. People who receive a kit are encouraged to participate.

If you are not yet eligible for the Program and if you have any concerns, speak to your GP about your options.

For more information about bowel cancer or bowel cancer screening phone your local Queensland Bowel Cancer Screening Program team on 1300 766 927 or visit www.health.qld.gov.au/bowelcancer.
