Offering practical and emotional support via the charity’s free Helpline to bowel cancer patients like Danielle, who was diagnosed with the disease at 34, and her family.
“Bowel Cancer Australia has helped me enormously, and I am truly grateful to them. Through the Peer-to-Peer Support Network I met and became friends with the Bowel Babes.
Bowel Cancer Australia and the Bowel Babes have been the silver lining to the cloud that is cancer.
The staff at Bowel Cancer Australia are all so friendly and personable, and they always help in whatever way they can - sometimes even in ways I yet haven't realised I needed!
With Bowel Cancer Australia I feel that I belong, and that I am included as much as I want to be with research, new developments and speaking to the media. It's great to have access to nurses and a nutritionist that have so much knowledge about bowel cancer.”
