Beating Bowel Cancer

We support those affected by bowel cancer to ensure they get the help they need


I'm growing a beard. Growing a beard for my sister in law who has bowel cancer. Come join me.. @decembeard2013

My sister-in-law Louisa, has recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer. With early detection, diagnosis and her fighting spirit, we are confident that Louisa will make a full recovery in the coming months.

Bowel cancer is the UK's second biggest cause of cancer deaths. Around 1 in 18 people will get bowel cancer and, of the 100 people diagnosed every day, almost half will die of the disease.Yet, in over 90% of cases, bowel cancer could be treated successfully if diagnosed early, which is why raising awareness is so important.

Beating Bowel Cancer is a national charity for those affected by bowel cancer and is dedicated to raising awareness of the symptoms and ultimately saving more lives.

So, throughout December I will be growing a beard and helping raise money for this amazing charity.Thank you very much for your support to this fantastic cause. Your donation truly means so much to both myself personally and, of course, to the Beating Bowel Cancer charity. Every single penny donated is very much appreciated and so please dig deep and support my efforts in supporting this great charity.
