Save the date! Sunday 8 October to Saturday 14 October 2017.

Awareness of primary bone cancer saves lives. During Bone Cancer Awareness Week we want to reach as many people as we can to raise the profile of this rare and brutal disease.

This year, we have a very special BBC Radio 4 Appeal planned for the week, which will be broadcast on Sunday 8 October and repeated on Thursday 12 October. We can't wait to announce our celebrity presenter very soon!

We know that time is precious so we’ll have lots of quick and simple ways for you to get involved; from tuning into our Radio 4 Appeal to baking a cake, organising your own fundraiser or getting involved on social media. Whether you can spare 5 minutes or a whole day, your support could make a huge difference.

Look out for more details in early September, or start organising your own event now.

How can you get planning to help raise #BoneCancerAwareness?
