Bowel cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Aussie women, claiming the lives of more than 2,400 wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, nieces and girlfriends in Australia every year.
But the good news is that bowel cancer is treatable and beatable if detected early.
That's why Bowel Cancer Australia is calling on all Aussie women to help us kick bowel cancer’s ass!
Help us increase awareness of bowel cancer in women and raise funds to better support the growing number of women diagnosed with bowel cancer each year.
Share your kick ass stories
Are you a kick ass woman living with or beyond bowel cancer, or do you have a female family member or friend that is?
We’re seeking female volunteers of all ages to share their experiences to help raise awareness of bowel cancer in women, show support for all the kick ass Aussie women currently living with or beyond bowel cancer, and help save lives.
Tell your story and help us kick bowel cancer’s butt.
To find out how you can share your kick ass story contact us today.
Host a kick ass awareness and fundraising event
Get together with your mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, cousins and girlfriends and host a kiss ass event to raise much needed funds and awareness for Bowel Cancer Australia.
We know that diet and lifestyle have a role to play in bowel cancer risk, so we encourage you to incorporate some physical activity and healthy food choices into your event.
Add a few healthy snacks to your high tea or ladies’ dinner party or organise a group session of walking, yoga, pilates, swimming, running, Zumba or Tai Chi.
Looking for an excuse for a girlie getaway - why not extend your awareness and fundraising activities into a weekend retreat!
Celebrate your kick ass mum on Mother’s Day
Mother's Day provides a lovely opportunity to celebrate all the wonderful Mums out there and also to remember the special Mums who are no longer with us.
A gift to Bowel Cancer Australia for Mother's Day, or to the lady in your life, is a wonderful gift in celebration or in memory.
It's a gift of hope for the future, a future where more families can stay together for longer and celebrate special days like Mother's Day together.
For further details visit In Celebration: Mother’s Day.
And don't forget - Mother's Day is also a great opportunity to spread the important bowel cancer awareness message to your Mum and Grandma.
