‘I want anyone who is suffering in silence
to find the courage to overcome
the embarrassment and go to the doctor
for their own survival in life.’

Andrew Drake - Co-founder Ducks and Drakes Cancer Trust


The early diagnosis of bowel cancer is critical to ensure the chance of survival.  Many people are too embarrassed to go to their GP or even tell a family member that they are experiencing bowel problems.  Ducks and Drakes Cancer Trust was founded to try to help people, especially young people, overcome the embarrassment and seek help immediately.
One way you can help us and potentially help save lives is to help spread awareness of bowel cancer and its symptoms.  We have posters and A5 leaflets which we can provide you with to display anywhere a young person might frequent.  For example:
  • Clubs
  • Music Venues
  • Leisure facilities / changing rooms
  • Pub toilets
  • Schools / Colleges / Universities
  • GP Surgeries / Clinics
If you think you can help us by displaying our leaflets, please email us with how many you would like along with your full contact details.

The Duckster says: 'If you have any of these symptoms get yourself down to the quack!'

The symptoms of bowel (colorectal) cancer can be:

  • Bleeding from your bottom and/or blood in your stools
  • A change in bowel habit lasting for 3 weeks or more especially to looser or runny stools
  • Unexplained weight loss, extreme tiredness for no obvious reason, a severe pain or lump in your tummy
