Between them, the two charities have over 50 years’ worth of experience in helping to fund cutting edge research and making enormous progress in the fight against bowel cancer and other bowel diseases. By pooling our resources and expertise, we’ll be able to fund more research and ultimately to impact more lives. 

In the UK, bowel cancer and other bowel diseases are woefully underfunded, despite the fact that these conditions can affect anybody; 1 in 15 men and 1 in 18 women will suffer from bowel cancer during their lives.

We believe that a cure for bowel cancer and effective treatments to mitigate, or entirely eradicate, other bowel diseases remains possible – but only if we continue to fund leading research and invest in our scientific and medical communities today, to see the benefits tomorrow.
