Improving treatment and care
Get Personal – Unlocking treatment and care for people with bowel cancer
Every year, around 10,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer and many more go on to progress to stage 4 after being diagnosed at an earlier stage. This is when the cancer has spread from the bowel to other parts of the body – usually the liver or lungs. Survival rates are poor, less than one in ten people diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer will survive.
Through the Get Personal campaign we are determined to make real change happen for people diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer.
