Be aware of bowel cancer

I am supporting Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer's campaign to raise awareness of key symptoms following my own diagnosis of the disease.

In April alone nearly 3,500 people will be diagnosed with bowel cancer and over 1,300 people will die of the disease. However, that shouldn’t be the case. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.

Being aware of the key symptoms and visiting your GP if things don’t feel right can help increase chances of an early diagnosis.

That’s why the charity is giving away free copies of its handy symptoms guide for you to share with your family and friends.
