Bowel Cancer Australia is the leading community-funded charity dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and care for everyone affected by bowel cancer. We make real change happen across the entire continuum of care.
Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age. 80 people die every week from the disease, and 1 in 13 Australians will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.
Charity initiatives such as Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, BowelScreen Australia® and the Get Your Rear in Gear Program raise awareness among health professionals and the community about the importance of early detection and intervention in the successful treatment of bowel cancer.
Through our Peer-to-Peer Network, we provide support, resources and advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives and friends, including Nurse, Stomal Therapy and Nutrition advisory services.
Bowel Cancer Australia is proudly 100% community funded, relying solely on donations and bequests to fund our life saving work.
Support Bowel Cancer Australia to help save lives and improve the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer.
To do all this, we rely on public support.
