Our story

Our founder Paul Finch was diagnosed with stage 3 nearly 4 colorectal cancer with probable secondary to lung in Jan 2014. As a result of his treatment at the Royal Marsden, he overturned a 10% chance of making it 5 years to 99% full recovery without major life changing bowel surgery with thanks to the expertise of the teams at the Royal Marsden.

What your donation will fund

On 18th October 2018 it's Red Trouser Day. We need your help to raise vital funds to support life-saving research into the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with bowel cancer.

The money raised by everyone who takes part in Red Trouser Day this year will help fund specific projects aimed at early diagnostics, robotic surgery & anxiety relief. The work is being undertaken by the Clinical Research team at The Royal Marsden where the results will be published to ensure the benefits reach bowel cancer patients everywhere.
