  • Bowelscan will continue saving lives at Our House. For thirty-six years Rotarians have been saving lives through the Bowelscan project. Now with the Federal Government has introduced a targeted screening program across Australia. The National Bowelscan Committee have decided to wind up the Rotary project and find a home for $44,800 which was the surplus funds raised throughout the years. Bowelscan was set up as an awareness program by Rotary Club of Lismore member and local Surgeon Dr Bill Brand. Dr Brand perceived a real need for people to be made aware of the implications of colo rectal cancer. Rotarians Lionel Phelps and Ted Roberts, the Rotary Club of Lismore took on Dr Bill’s initiative and the project was born and given the name “Bowelscan”.The purpose built accommodation Our House, for those receiving treatment have been chosen to be recipient of the funds from Bowelscan. Pictured is Dr Chris Ingall, Chair of Our House and Lionel Phelps one of the founders of the bowelscan project along with the original Rotarians who volunteered with the project.
