Bowel Cancer Australia


Bowel Cancer Australia works to reduce the impact of bowel cancer in our society through awareness, education, support and research.

We aim to help save lives from this common cancer, Australia’s second biggest cancer killer.

Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age. 78 people die every week from the disease, and 1 in 12 of us will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.

Charity initiatives such as the Love My Family campaign, Bowel Cancer Awareness Weekâ„¢, BowelScreen Australiaâ„¢ and our Healthy Community Program have raised awareness about the critical important of early detection and intervention in the successful treatment of bowel cancer.

Through our ‘Love My Family’ Community, we provide support, resources and advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives and friends.

To do all this, we rely on public support.

We are very grateful to the many people who do a fantastic job of helping us promote awareness in their communities as well as our corporate sponsors who provide invaluable support for our work. Click on their logo to find out more.
