The Undercover Appeal
Colorectal cancer, a cancer of the colon or rectum, is one of the most common cancers and over 36,000 people are diagnosed each year in the UK. The main parts of our large bowel are the colon and rectum.
We can all find it difficult or uncomfortable to talk about areas of our bodies that are so personal and not everyone wants to see a physician to get screened for these types of cancers.
Velindre’ s Colorectal Research campaign The Undercover Appeal aims to increase awareness of these “hidden” cancers and to raise the money needed to continue to fund and expand our research programmes. Funding for bowel cancer research projects will enable our research groups to keep up with the international forefront and help us make new discoveries faster.
