This year’s General Insurance Seminar will be supporting Bowel Cancer Australia. There are more than 14,000 reasons to support Bowel Cancer Australia – one for each person whose life will be changed when they are diagnosed with bowel cancer, and that's just in one year.
Unlike many other cancers, bowel cancer is preventable, yet:
- it is the second biggest cancer killer of Australians, after lung cancer; and
- 77 Australians – males and females, young and old – lose their lives to this cancer every week.
Bowel Cancer Australia has a vision to reduce incidence, death and suffering associated with bowel cancer through advocacy, awareness, education, support and research. Founded in 2000, Bowel Cancer Australia is the only national charity that works across the entire bowel cancer spectrum. The charity is driven by a small team of staff and volunteers and receives no government funding.
Your support not only helps to save lives, but also to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer.
