Bowel Cancer NZ
Bowel cancer is the second highest cause of cancer death in New Zealand. It kills as many New Zealanders as breast and prostate cancer combined, and it can affect anyone at any age. But it is treatable – and beatable – if it’s detected early enough. Learn more about bowel cancer and the symptoms here.
Bowel Cancer New Zealand supports those living with bowel cancer and their families; educating communities and raising awareness of bowel cancer symptoms; advocating for nationwide screening; and funding research into treatments, and ultimately, a cure.
To date, over $100,000 has been donated towards critical research, creating further learnings and discoveries on ways to detect and treat bowel cancer in New Zealand.
