Your risk of developing bowel cancer may be a lot higher than average if you have a history of the disease in your family.

Jodi’s story was the driving force behind Know Your Risk – a new website that helps you build a family tree including those close relatives whose history can impact your bowel cancer risk. The website provides you with an assessment of your risk to discuss further with your doctor.

If detected early, 90% of bowel cancers could be prevented or successfully treated. Understanding your family history of bowel cancer could save your life!
