Help us to stop bowel cancer

Become a Friend

Do something amazing and become a Friend today

Donate at least £10 a month and become a Friend, supporting our vital research and lifesaving work.

Annmarie became a Friend as her mum Margaret was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2009.  Following surgery Margaret thankfully made a full recovery. Annmarie is so happy to have her mum still with her, especially since the birth of her twin boys. Supporting us is her way of “giving back”. 

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. 

Every Friend we have makes such a difference. We rely almost entirely on funding from the general public and cannot stop people dying from bowel cancer without regular financial support. 

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.
