Bowel cancer is one of the forms of cancer that is very treatable and that has a high success rate if you seek medical treatment as soon as possible. It does however, cost a great deal, particularly if you are wanting immediate medical attention. In most cases, families who cannot afford to pay $2000 for preventable treatment or $$60,000 to $70,000 on average for surgery to remove the tumour before it has a chance to spread, you will be put on the long waiting list under the public health and medicare system.
For Australian patients however who are in dire need of medical treatment, the prolong treatment or solution for bowel cancer can mean the spread of cancer to other vital organs or premature death which was preventable.
Raising money to cover medical costs particularly if you are suffering from bowel cancer can be a great solution that is effective for Australian families to do. You can do this by using an online fundraising website or service such as PeoplePledge.
The benefit of using such a service means that you will receive support from family, friends and your outer networks to help cover the costs of surgery or treatment. This is ideal for Colon Cancer and Rectal Cancer patients in Australia. Accessibility of the website can reach international supporters, particularly if you have family overseas who still want to help support you but do not want the hassle of international bank fees and transactions. Being open 24 hours 7 days a week means that you can get donations across Australia at any time.
