Help us to educate and find new innovative ways to reduce New Zealands bowel cancer rates through early detection.
Bowel cancer is the most diagnosed cancer here in New Zealand with over 3,200 people diagnosed each year.
90% of bowel cancers can be prevented if we catch it early enough by screening at an earlier age, and rehabilitating cancer patients to reduce secondary bowel cancer and other secondary diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Bowel Cancer Foundation Trust provides screening, rehabilitation and help with treatment for those who do not qualify in the public system to detect bowel cancer early and help save lives.
We also fund vital research helping to provide better patient outcomes.
Bowel Cancer Foundation is a disruptive digital charity set up by our CEO/Founder, Georgina Mason in 2013.
We are a not for profit organisation that helps all bowel cancer patients with screening, treatment and rehabilitation in New Zealand only.
We rely on the generous donations from the public, corporate partnerships and events to help with our work.
Because we are a digital charity we have low overhead costs.
