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 of us 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 Support Network, we provide support, resources and advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives and friends.
