"Life is beautiful and I want to see my gorgeous grandchildren grow up. A simple home FOB Test saved my life, it could save yours too."
Liz Smart, author and grandmother – diagnosed with bowel cancer following a positive FOB Test.
During Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Let’s Beat Bowel Cancer reminds Australians about the importance of testing for bowel cancer, and urges everyone 50 and over to do a simple FOB Test (faecal occult blood test) in the privacy of their own homes.
While bowel cancer is the second greatest cause of cancer-related death in Australia – and our most prevalent internal cancer in men and women – it is also the most preventable. One Australian dies every two hours from bowel cancer – over 4,000 Australians every year.
Bowel cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable, if detected early.
If you’re 50 and over you need to screen every 1 to 2 years…it could save your life.
