About the charity Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK - 35,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year - 1 in 18 men and 1 in 20 women are diagnosed with bowel cancer. GUTS aim is to improve the survival of people with bowel cancer in the South East of England by early detection and to raise awareness of the disease. GUTS funds a Family Colorectal Cancer Clinic (FCCC) based at the Royal Surrey County Hospital. This offers advice and screening to people at a high risk of developing bowel cancer. GUTS also funds research into new ways of detecting bowel cancer and into better ways of treating the disease. GUTS provides a unique service for the community but they need your help to both maintain this service and to spread awareness of this common cancer.
