Our Mission / Objective

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

Our Services

Bowel Cancer Australia makes real change happen across the entire continuum of care -











* We challenge perceptions through dynamic campaigning that raises awareness and motivates action;











* We increase health knowledge and understanding through the provision of practical information and programs;











* We champion what matters most to people affected by bowel cancer and empower them with the tools and knowledge to be advocates for their own health;











* We provide practical and emotional support for the growing number of Australians affected by bowel cancer, building communities through shared experiences and creating a powerful voice for change;











* We campaign for access to treatment and best care, to ensure more people live beyond bowel cancer;











* We fund research as it is the only way to discover a cure for bowel cancer; and











* We raise money to continue our life-saving work and inspire others to do the same.

Our Beneficiaries

Bowel Cancer Australia's vision is to have an everlasting impact on our health future - one where no Australian dies from bowel cancer and all those diagnosed receive the support they need.



Bowel cancer affects men and women equally, of any age. 80 people die every week from the disease, and 1 in 13 of us will receive a bowel cancer diagnosis during our lifetime.













Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer of Australians.







Projects in Progress

 













Awareness - National community awareness campaigns and initiatives to raise awareness about the critical importance of early detection and intervention in the successful treatment of bowel cancer. These include: Bowel Cancer Awareness Week, Red Apple Day, Bowel Cancer Awareness Month; the It’s Crunch Time, Love My Family and Don’t Hide Your Symptoms Behind Closed Doors campaigns. 












 












Bowel Cancer Awareness Week 2012 is to be held on the 3rd - 9th June, with Red Apple Day on Wednesday 6th June 2012.












 












Education - Since 2002, Bowel Cancer Australia has been taking vital information to workplaces, health professionals and community groups through initiatives like the Healthy Community Program, Super Colon tour and more recently the BowelScreen Australia Program.












 












Support - Bowel Cancer Australia's 'Love My Family' Community is a voluntary network of people affected by bowel cancer, whether personally or via a family member.  We also offer tailored support through our nurse and nutritionist advisory services, the online bowel cancer forum, as well as provide a range of resources and advocacy for bowel cancer patients, their carers, close relatives and friends.












 












Research - Bowel Cancer Australia is committed to funding research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of bowel cancer and related disorders; as well as establishing Australia’s inaugural endowed Chair in Bowel Cancer research and associated Centre of Excellence.






Our People

Leadership Team

The Bowel Cancer Australia Board is ultimately responsible for ensuring organisational objectives are met and legal and financial obligations are fulfilled. 













 












As is common with most charities, all of our Directors are volunteers who give a considerable amount of time, energy, ideas and enthusiasm to the charity free of charge. 












 












Our current Directors come from a diverse range of backgrounds and bring a wealth of skills and experience.
