Bowel cancer remains the second biggest cancer killer in Australia today

Over 80 Australians die from the disease each and every week. However if detected early, bowel cancer is 90% curable.

Annual testing for bowel cancer is recommended for all men and women over the age of 40 years.

A Bowelscan test can save a life

After taking Rotary’s annual test for many years I missed one year. Luckily I did a follow up test and cancer was detected. It’s scary, I had no symptoms.

Anthony Wills

I only missed two years and that's all it took for me to be in serious trouble. It was such a shock to hear that the test came back with three positives.

Max Bissett

I would certainly endorse Bowelscan and would urge everyone to take the test each year in the hope of detecting bowel cancer at the earliest possible stage.

Roy McQueen

I was so lucky that the test caught the cancer when it did. It scares me to think had I left it any longer I might not be here to watch my grandchildren grow up.

The initiative of over 300 Rotary Clubs across Australia

The programme runs during two months every year to raise the awareness of the risks of bowel cancer and to encourage Australian's most at risk to take the annual test.

With the support of hundreds of pharmacies throughout Australia, the programme distributes Bowelscan testing kits to local communities, giving people the opportunity to test themselves early and regularly enough to have a fighting chance at survival.
