Never Too Young - Bowel Cancer Awareness Fundraiser

The Ella jumper and trackpant collection is our first charity range. With $5 from each sale going to Bowel Cancer Australia. 

This is a cause close to our hearts, after losing a dear friend to this disease we are passionate about raising awareness of symptoms and early disease onset for younger people. We do this in their honour. 

Bowel Cancer Australia's Never 2 Young initiative raises awareness of common symptoms and signs to support early detection of this cancer in young people.

Here are some statistics from the Bowel Cancer Australia website
