Bowel Cancer Australia works to reduce the impact of bowel cancer in our society through awareness, education, support & research. We aim to help save lives from this common cancer, Australia’s 2nd biggest cancer killer.
Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age. 78 people die every week from the disease, & 1 in 12 of us will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.
Charity initiatives such as Bowel Cancer Awareness Week, BowelScreen Australia & the Health in the Workplace Program raise awareness among health professionals & the community about the importance of early detection and intervention in the successful treatment of bowel cancer. Through our ‘Love My Family’ Community, we provide support, resources & advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives & friends.
To do all this, we rely on public support.
