Bowel Cancer Australia is your community-funded charity, helping thousands of Australians diagnosed with bowel cancer each year to stay together for longer and celebrate special occasions like Christmas, together.

Where would you go for information if you or a loved one heard those four words ‘you have bowel cancer’? Who would you turn to for support?

If you’re like the growing number of Australians affected by the disease, you would seek out Bowel Cancer Australia for practical and emotional support.

After visiting the charity’s website, you’d call through on our free helpline and speak with me or one of our Bowel Cancer Nurses to answer a long list of questions you’d likely have running through your head.

Described as a lifeline, our team of Bowel Care Nurses and Nutritionist add an extra layer of support to the trusted relationship patients have with their treating medical team at a very difficult time.

Our Peer-to-Peer Support Network and Buddy Program build communities through shared experiences, offering patients and loved ones with reassurance and an invaluable level of support that can only be provided by someone else who has been there too.  

We are so grateful you share Bowel Cancer Australia’s 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.

Your generosity enables us to offer much-needed support to patients like Angel, Danielle, Geoff, Jamie, Jodie, Makala, Peter, Sarah, Steve and the many others like them nationwide.

Your support ensures our team is always there to help bowel cancer patients and their families when they need it most and enables us to empower them with the tools and resources they need to support each other during a difficult and challenging time.  

With more and more Australians being affected by bowel cancer, directly or through a loved one, the need for resources and funding is growing.

Your donation this festive season will have a direct impact, providing a gift of hope for the future – a future where more families can stay together for longer celebrating special occasions like Christmas together.

Thank you for helping us to make real change happen and best wishes for the festive season and 2019!

Sincerely,

 

Fiona Radford

Bowel Care Nurse

“They have been the silver lining to the cloud that is cancer, always happy to help in whatever way they can - sometimes even in ways I yet haven't realised I needed!”

Danielle (diagnosed at 34)

As much as our family and friends offered support, no one truly understood what we were going through having not been through it.”

Sarah (diagnosed at 33)

I never realised how isolating disease and illness are. Having someone I could talk and vent to who'd been through it, who knew what I was going through, was so important.”

Peter (diagnosed at 34)

“They have helped me in so many ways – from helping me spread awareness through their #Never2Young program to introducing me to a bunch of awesome people through their Peer-to-Peer Support Network”

Geoff (diagnosed at 33)

“The Bowel Cancer Australia team have been an integral part of my journey and have had such a positive impact on my treatment pathway.”
Makala (diagnosed at 32)
