Bowel Cancer Australia

Bowel Cancer Australia

There are more than 15,000 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;
  • 80 Australians - males and females, young and old - lose their lives to this cancer every week.

Bowel Cancer Australia has a vision to have an everlasting impact on our health future - one where no Australian dies from bowel cancer and all those diagnosed receive the support they need.

Founded in 2000, Bowel Cancer Australia is the only national charity that works across the entire bowel cancer spectrum.

The charity is driven by a small team of staff and volunteers and receives no government funding.

Please support Bowel Cancer Australia to help save lives and to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer at
