Beating Bowel Cancer Month.....

April - Beating Bowel Cancer month.....it's nearly over now but that doesn't mean you can become complacent!

This is a US video below, therefore mentions being 'over 50' and having your colonoscopy.

In the UK there is a different, non invasive, test that is for 'over 60's' (England and Wales) so ensure you do this even if you have NO symptoms.
If you have symptoms and are younger than 60 then GET CHECKED OUT!

In the meantime, watch this video and maybe it'll make you smile


  1. I am getting as many people as I can to at least think about this...you are a real inspiration!
    How did work go???
    Hope that it went well!
    Hugs, Carol

  2. Carole,
    Funny delivery of a pretty serious message! Glad April is over for both of us!
