Bowel Cancer Foundation Trust is helping to shape the new Cancer Control Agency in New Zealand

Bowel cancer is the most diagnosed cancer here in New Zealand with over 3,000 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 and partner with a number of leading clinicians, institutions and academics across New Zealand

helping to provide better patient outcomes and equity of care across the country.
