Since we launched our Never Too Young campaign, we regularly hear from younger people with bowel cancer who find it hard to get information and support that is relevant to them.
As a result of this feedback, we have produced a new booklet called Younger people with bowel cancer: a guide for the under 50s. This aims to fill the gaps in the information that younger people receive when they are diagnosed with bowel cancer. We hope it will also be useful for family and friends.
The booklet gives an introduction to how bowel cancer can affect the body, emotions, relationships and everyday life. It contains information on issues such as fertility, genetic risk, the impact on young children, family and work life, and contains lots of recommendations for other useful sources of information.
