Share your story
We’re always looking for people to share their experience of bowel cancer and Bowel Cancer UK. Whether you have personal experience yourself or through a family member or friend with the disease, we use stories in the media, on our website, on social media and in our materials.
By raising awareness of what we do and of bowel cancer, we can reach more people and save more lives. Personal stories highlight the experience of people affected by bowel cancer, raise awareness of the signs and symptoms and can encourage and inspire other people affected. Read our real life stories.
Update April 2020
Unfortunately due to current circumstances we’re unable to receive any new stories at the moment. This is only temporary and we’d love to hear your story as soon as we’re able to, so please check again in the near future to share yours with us.
In the meantime, you may wish to join our online community and share your story with others who have been through or are going through something similar. It’s a place for anyone affected by bowel cancer to talk about their experiences, share their knowledge and support each other.
