Welcome to Bowel Cancer New Zealand, a national charity for people and their families/whānau affected by bowel cancer. We are working to raise awareness of symptoms, promote early diagnosis and encourage fair and affordable access to treatment for you
Request a bowel screen test kit. NZ does not have a government-funded nationwide bowel screening programme. All NZers aged 50+ who do not have symptoms or a family history of bowel cancer are encouraged to undertake bowel cancer screening.
A key objective for Bowel Cancer NZ is to provide support for patients and families going through bowel cancer. We hope this group will work as a forum for people to discuss bowel cancer and their journey with people going through similar experiences as themselves in a supportive environment. Anyone is welcome and it is a closed group to allow members maximum privacy, only members of the group are able to see the posts.
