Become a Friend

Billy Boyle lost his beloved wife Kate to bowel cancer aged just 36 on Christmas day.  Unfortunately her cancer had been diagnosed too late for effective treatment.  Over 16,000 people die from bowel cancer in the UK every year, but we are determined to change that. 

So is Billy.  He knows that cutting edge research to improve early diagnosis will give hope to other families in the future.

Join him by becoming a friend today and supporting our vital research and lifesaving work to stop bowel cancer.

Why your support is needed right now

Every 15 minutes in the UK someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer.  That’s over 41,000 people every year.. Bowel cancer is also the second biggest cancer killer in the UK, meaning thousands of lives are needlessly lost each year and families torn apart. Through an increased investment in bowel cancer research we can stop this. 

Lives can be saved if we could diagnose people earlier, develop new and more effective treatments, and ensure people, irrespective of where they live, have access to high quality care. The major advances in saving lives from bowel cancer in the past 20 years have all come through research. Therefore, through strategic investment in targeted research, we will deliver improvements in bowel cancer survival in our lifetime.

£10 a month could help us support research that:

  • Improves the early diagnosis of bowel cancer giving people the best chance of survival
  • Increases understanding of the causes of bowel cancer including in younger people
  • Improves the identification and monitoring of people at higher risk of bowel cancer
  • Leads to advances in surgical techniques and treatment for bowel cancer
