                 Bowel Cancer Australia

                      There are more than 14,000 reasons

                      to support Bowel Cancer Australia -

                     one for each person whose life will be changed when they are diagnosed with bowel cancer, and that's just in one year. 

 

Unlike many other cancers, bowel cancer is preventable, yet:

  • it is the second biggest cancer killer of Australians, after lung cancer;

  • 77 Australians - males and females, young and old - lose their lives to this cancer every week.

 

This is where Bowel Cancer Australia comes in.  The charity works to reduce the impact of bowel cancer in the community through advocacy, awareness, education, support and research.  

 

Bowel Cancer Australia works across a range of activities that help prevent, detect and manage bowel cancer.  It has earned a leading role in these activities while working with health organisations, government, business and volunteers to further leverage its efforts and results.
