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.


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!

For further details on hosting a fundraiser go to Making a Difference or create an online fundraising page via Everyday Hero, Go Fundraise or My Cause.


Share your kick ass stories

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Bowel Cancer Australia is raising awareness of bowel cancer in women and sharing empowering stories from Aussie women who are kicking bowel cancer’s ass.

It is a common misconception that bowel cancer is an old man’s disease. Yet the reality is, bowel cancer affects women of all ages, and almost half of all people diagnosed with bowel cancer in Australia each year are women.

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 in celebration of International Women’s Day, raise awareness of bowel cancer in women and help us kick bowel cancer’s ass.
