Bowel Cancer Australia works to reduce the impact of bowel cancer in our society through awareness, education, support and research.
We aim to help save lives from this common cancer, Australia's second biggest cancer killer.
Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age. 78 people die every week from the disease, and 1 in 12 of us will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.
Charity initiatives such as Bowel Cancer Awareness Week®, BowelScreen Australia® and the Healthy Community Program raise awareness among health professionals and the community about the importance of early detection and intervention in the successful treatment of bowel cancer.
Through our ‘Love My Family' Community, we provide support, resources and advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives and friends.
To do all this, we rely on public support.
Bowel Cancer Australia wishes to thank Ritchies and all the customers who participate in the Community Benefits scheme for their wonderful support of our charity. Your contribution makes a real difference, and we greatly appreciate it.
