Find out how you can support Bowel Cancer UK's 'Never too young campaign.
Never Too Young is leading change for younger bowel cancer patients. The campaign is giving younger patients a voice and changing clinical practice and policy to stop bowel cancer in people under 50.
Every year 2,400 younger people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in the UK. While this is only five per cent of those diagnosed, this number is slowly increasing. Our research has shown that younger bowel cancer patients have a very different experience of diagnosis, treatment and care.
Since they launched the Never Too Young campaign in 2013, they have made much progress, including to change GP referral guidelines to include younger people for the first time.
Please support the Bowel Cancer UK charity in any way that you can. You can find out more about them from their website or Facebook page.
