Bowel Cancer Awareness Month has a very special meaning for those who have been touched by bowel cancer, whether it be personally or through a loved one. Sharing personal experiences and the story of your bowel cancer journey is often the most powerful message of all when it comes to raising much needed awareness of bowel cancer and encouraging people to take action.

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month also provides a lovely opportunity to join with others living with or beyond bowel cancer, show support for a family member or friend, and to positively honour the memory of a loved one.

  • Join others living with or beyond bowel cancer and their loved ones as part of Bowel Cancer Australia's Peer-to-Peer Support Network

  • Order a box of Bowel Cancer Awareness Ribbons to sell among your family, friends and local community
