About Bowel Cancer West

The charity was founded to improve survival rates of people with bowel cancer in the south west. Currently, one in three people in the west country know someone with bowel cancer and the disease has a dangerously low profile. We are here to change that by funding three key areas:

WE FUND RESEARCH conducted at west country universities to plug a national gap. Our projects are internationally recognised and carefully selected by a BCW grants committee of esteemed academics to ensure we remain focused on the right areas.

We raise AWARENESS of bowel cancer. Incidences of the disease are high and awareness levels are alarmingly low. Everyone between the age of 60-74 is sent a test every two years but many choose to ignore this. Discussing bowel habits (and potential symptoms) is also a tricky topic, but together we can combat the cringe' to ensure everyone has the knowledge they need about this disease to catch it early.

WE PROVIDE TRAINING for NHS staff to ensure they provide patients with the best possible care. We train them to diagnose patients effectively and to offer the best support surrounding any treatment required.

With your support, we can considerably reduce the number of early deaths in the south west by putting the brakes on this disease.
