Were you diagnosed with bowel cancer in your 50s?
If so, the comms team at Beating Bowel Cancer would like to hear from you. We have been campaigning since January on the issue of the bowel screening age, which is 50 in Scotland, in line with international recommendations, but 60 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
We're about to launch a new assault and are looking for forum members diagnosed in their 50s, who would be happy to feature in our social media campaign. We'd need a quick quote and a photograph and would identify you by first name only.
Please help if you can: notwithstanding the numbers of younger forum members affected by the disease, reducing the screening age (and getting people to do the flipping test!) is one of the key things we can do to secure early diagnosis and hence successful treatment.
Please message me or email firstname.lastname@example.org
