Medical research plays a significant and critical role in improving the health and wellbeing of all Australians, allowing us to remain healthier for longer due to improved treatments and improved healthcare that results from this research.

Bowel Cancer Australia is the leading community-funded organisation dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and the best care for everyone affected by bowel cancer. 

We fund research because it is the only way to discover a cure for bowel cancer.

Laughing when faced with a life-threatening illness doesn't quite seem appropriate, does it?

But at times, it's the only thing that can help a person cope with a distressing situation.

While bowel cancer is no laughing matter, finding humour in the centre of difficulty – though it might seem an impossible feat – is not only possible, it's probable.

When Ros Ben-Moshe was diagnosed with bowel cancer at age 42, she was in no mood to laugh, but says she knew somehow laughter would be integral to her healing and recovery.

Many bowel cancer patients have shared stories of tremendous support from family and friends when they first received their bowel cancer diagnosis or while they were in hospital.

However, it is often after a person has left hospital and is receiving treatment in the out-patient setting that they need the most help, support, and encouragement.

Studies show people with cancer have a more positive outlook and often report a better quality of life if they receive emotional support while adjusting to their new ‘normal’.

“You can make a big difference for someone you know with bowel cancer,” says Bowel Care Nurse Fiona Radford.

Around 11 Australians will lose their lives to bowel cancer every day, according to Australia’s first national report presenting comprehensive data specific to digestive-tract cancers.

By year’s end, it is estimated the disease will claim the lives of 4,129 family members, friends, and loved ones.

The report reveals that new cases of bowel cancer detected in Australia are rising, due in part to a growing and ageing population and the introduction of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) in 2006.

Every day, approximately 47 Australians are told for the first time that they have bowel cancer.
