Go Dry this July for Bowel Cancer Australia

Around 300 Australians diagnosed with bowel cancer every week and it remains Australia’s second deadliest cancer.

Bowel Cancer Australia is a 100% community-funded national charity dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, quality treatment and the best care for everyone affected by bowel cancer.

We are raising funds for:

Bowel Cancer Australia’s 2021 Dry July team is raising funds to employ Australia's first dedicated Bowel Cancer Care Oncology Social Worker.

With expertise in intensive care, oncology and stomal therapy, Bowel Cancer Australia’s friendly Bowel Care Nurses and Nutritionists provide telenursing and telenutrition support nationwide to patients, family, friends, and concerned members of the community.

The addition of a Bowel Cancer Care Oncology Social Worker to the team will provide further cancer-focused support to the growing number of Australians affected by bowel cancer. Helping to reduce anxiety and distress, and increase feelings of hope and empowerment, by assisting patients in learning new ways of coping, providing practical information about available resources in their community, and improving communication with their medical team and loved ones.
