Beat Bowel Cancer

Bowel Cancer Australia's annual public awareness campaign aimed at raising awareness that bowel cancer often develops without any warning signs.
 
Bowel cancer is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer, after lung cancer.
 
It affects men and women, young and old. Over 15,000 Australians are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, 1,115 of whom are under the age of 50.
 
If detected early, 90% of bowel cancer cases can be successfully treated so . . . don’t wait until it’s too late!

Meat Free Week - Eat Well. Live Well. Be Well.

Going meat free for one week creates a great opportunity to get Aussies thinking about how much meat they eat and the impact eating too much meat may have.
 
With education, awareness and the information to make informed choices, the goal is that for the other 51 weeks of the year meat-eaters will consider portion sizes when including meat as part of a balanced diet.
 
As proud health partner of Meat Free Week since 2014, Bowel Cancer Australia continues to this dynamic awareness and fundraising campaign that motivates action as studies show bowel cancer risk increases relative to the amount of red and processed meat consumed.

You're Never Too Young

You have bowel cancer - four words you don't expect to hear when you're young. Yet each year over 1,000 young Australians do.
 
It is a common misconception that bowel cancer is 'an old person's disease', but the reality is that you should never be told that you are too young to have bowel cancer.
 
Although a large majority of newly diagnosed bowel cancer cases occur in people aged 50 years and over, around 1 in 14 Australians diagnosed with bowel cancer are under the age of 50.
