Bowel Cancer Australia's Peer-to-Peer Support Network

Bowel Cancer Australia's Peer-to-Peer Support Network, is a voluntary community of people affected by bowel cancer, whether personally or via a family member.
 
It is Australia's only national bowel cancer support group for bowel cancer patients and loved ones.
 
Bowel Cancer Australia is committed to supporting individuals and their families through all stages of their journey.  We are working hard to ensure ongoing awareness and support following a bowel cancer diagnosis.

The network is informal, and members can be as involved as their time and lifestyle allow, in a variety of ways -

  • offering support to other patients or relatives about their bowel cancer experience (on the phone, by email or face to face); listening to their concerns and sharing experiences (including treatment, side effects and coping strategies)
     
  • raising awareness via local media and other means, or through Bowel Cancer Australia's Get Your Rear in Gear Corporate and Community Wellbeing Program

  • organising fundraising events and activities

Through the network, we aim to put people in touch with each other – matching them by age, gender, region and their stage of bowel cancer and treatment pathway.  Contact details of matched members will then be provided, enabling members to contact each other at mutually convenient times.

Talking to another member who has been through bowel cancer, or who is going through a similar situation, can be enormously valuable and reassuring.

On each occasion, member's details will never be disclosed to anyone without their permission and we will always check each time to ensure you're happy to receive a call.

Relatives and friends of patients can also benefit from this support as we are able to put them in touch with other people who have a loved one with bowel cancer.
