Get involved in research The Big Bowel Survey 2018 The Big Bowel Survey 2018 Do you live in Leeds, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol or Birmingham? If so, you will soon be receiving a letter asking you to take part in our The Big Bowel Survey about bowel disease. Please don't to throw it away! Just fill in the form and return it to Bowel & Cancer Research. We need your help. Here's why: because bowel cancer is one of the easiest cancers to cure but remains the second biggest killer after lung cancer; because Inflammatory Bowel Disease affects more than 250,000 people and is incurable; because chronic conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and incontinence will affect almost everyone at some stage in their lives. The aim of Bowel & Cancer Research is to help change those statistics. This survey will give us invaluable information about how much people know about bowel diseases, and help us to direct our research funding in the most productive way. Only by talking about bowel disease and raising awareness can we achieve our aim of changing and saving lives. By filling in our Big Bowel Survey, you'll be doing a little that goes a very long way. Thank you!
