Real life stories

Every day we speak to people affected by bowel cancer, each one with a unique, emotive story to tell. Our Bowel Cancer Voices cover every age group and every walk of life, from across the UK. Examples of recent headlines include:


“The specialist told me I just had piles, why didn’t he realise it was colon cancer?”


“Coping with cancer: my life had been frantic, now my perspective has totally changed”


“Will I ever be a mum now?”


“I saved someone’s life and saved mine too”


“GP said my pain was all in the mind – now I face death”


“At 55 I thought my time was up”
