Mark and Linda have both lost loved ones to bowel cancer.
They generously agreed to appear in our television commercial.
You can watch and read their stories here.
Mark is a bowel cancer survivor. Unfortunately, just 10 years after Mark had his own cancer experience, his mum was also diagnosed with bowel cancer.
Linda’s father sadly passed away from bowel cancer. Linda says things could have been different if he had done the test. In this video she talks about her father’s experiences.
Belle, James, and Donna were diagnosed with bowel cancer. Early detection was key in their successful treatment.
At age 50, Belle thought she was too young to have bowel cancer. She urges people aged 50-74 to do the test – it could save your life.
James says that the bowel cancer screening test may sound unappealing, but it’s nothing compared to the emotional and physical consequences of finding bowel cancer too late.
When Donna Porteous received her bowel cancer screening kit in the mail just after she turned 50, she didn’t think twice about what she needed to do.
