Bowel Cancer Australia's vision is to reduce incidence, death and suffering associated with bowel cancer through advocacy, awareness, education, support and research.
Founded in 2000, Bowel Cancer Australia has grown significantly in the scope of its activities. However, the charity remains driven by a small core team of staff and volunteers and is proudly 100% community funded.
Please support Bowel Cancer Australia to help save lives and to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer.

Bowel Cancer Australia's Patrons
Bowel Cancer Australia is fortunate to enjoy philanthropic support from two leading businessmen.
Their support, complemented by community and corporate fundraising, provides the financial base necessary for Bowel Cancer Australia's advocacy, awareness, education, patient support and research activities.
The Apple Logo
The outline of Bowel Cancer Australia's apple logo appears as an abstract of a human colon.
The small hole in the apple is caused by a worm. If detected early and removed, the worm is unable to continue affecting the apple or the health of the tree.
It's the same with people. If bowel cancer is detected early it can be successfully treated and people can continue to enjoy life.
It looked spectacular, Canberra's Old Parliament House being lit in red and green for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month!
However, there was so much more to 2014 that may not have caught the public's eye but made a real difference to the thousands of people affected by bowel cancer.
The culmination of many years of hard work, we committed $8.9 million to establish the country's first professorial chair in bowel cancer research at the University of Sydney.
Bowel Cancer Australia is proudly 100% community funded and making a real and practical difference in saving lives and improving the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer.
