Bowel Cancer Australia will be in Albury tomorrow urging locals to make sure bowel cancer is not number two on their list of priorities. A walk through giant inflatable bowel will be at the Mirambeena Community Centre with organisers encouraging locals to go there and get information. Julien Wiggins, CEO, Bowel Cancer Australia, says about 5% to 6% of all bowel cancer cases are generic, and around 20% have a family history.

Walking through a giant bowel would not be most people's idea of fun. Thankfully this bowel, pictured right, is simply a replica designed to raise awareness of bowel cancer and will visit Deniliquin on Thursday, May 28.
 
The giant inflatable 'Big Bowel' — 7m long by 2.6m high — replicates the human colon and features examples of giant polyps, early stage and advanced bowel cancer as well as colitis and Crohns Disease.

A GIANT bowel will be on the Border next week. And those with the guts will be able to walk through it. While that may sound disgusting to some, the campaign is simply a way to raise awareness of bowel cancer says project co-ordinator and former oncology nurse Robyn Sharman.
 
The bowel is seven metres long, five metres wide and 2½ metres high. As you walk through it there is signage and areas show you diseases of the bowel like cancer, polyps, colitis and Crohn's disease. "Bowel cancer kills 4000 Australians a year and it is one of the cancers that is very preventable and treatable if you catch it early," Ms Sharman said.
