Right now, almost half of adults in the UK can’t name a single symptom of bowel cancer - despite it being the fourth most common cancer. Knowing the symptoms, and acting on them, means that bowel cancer can be diagnosed earlier when it is more treatable and curable. But fewer than 40% of people are diagnosed at the earliest stages. We can change this and ultimately save more lives.
Changes in bowel habit and blood in your poo are two bowel cancer symptoms that happen while you’re on the toilet. That’s why we’re calling on supermarkets to put symptoms on their own brand loo roll packaging - where people need to see them most. But we need your help.
As a customer, you hold the power and supermarkets will listen. Tweet your supermarket and ask them to raise awareness by adding bowel cancer symptoms to their loo roll packaging today. Help us #GetOnARoll and save lives.
M&S has already committed and kicked this campaign into action. We urgently need you to get supermarkets to follow suit.
