Help stop people dying of bowel cancer this World Cancer Day
This year we’re marking World Cancer Day by asking you to join us in making a difference for those with bowel cancer, today, tomorrow and throughout 2019.
We’re the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity and are determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone impacted by this disease. We fund targeted research, provide expert information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care.
Our vision is a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer but we can’t achieve this alone.
Find out how you can support us this World Cancer Day and throughout 2019.
How to support us today
Spread awareness on social media
Whether you’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Linked In, join us in raising awareness about bowel cancer and its symptoms. Tell your friends and followers about how you’re affected by the disease and share our World Cancer Day posts. Here is some inspiration:

Show your support
Use your wardrobe to raise bowel cancer awareness, by sporting a Star of Hope pin badge. It’s a great way to start conversations and each pin bought also provides a donation to the charity.
How to support us tomorrow
Why not give a one off donation or set up a monthly direct debit to donate. By donating £5 a month you could help us drive vital improvements to screening so more people have their cancer detected early. While a donation of £10 a month could help improve survival rates and quality of life for people living with advanced bowel cancer.
