Younger people (under 50) are dying needlessly from bowel cancer. Shockingly nearly one in two women and one in ten men either saw their GP more than five times before being referred to a specialist, or were diagnosed as an emergency before being referred. Bowel Cancer UK’s Never too young campaign hopes to change this.
As part of the next phase of activity for #never2young for younger bowel cancer patients Bowel Cancer UK has set up a petition asking the Prime Minister to meet with Bowel Cancer UK and the families and representatives of younger bowel cancer patients. Grant Imlach says, “We are hoping to get at least 5,000 signatures to show the Prime Minister how much support we have. We will be presenting the signatures to Downing Street in a few months.”
It would be great if you could sign the petition here: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/prime-minister-david-cameron-save-lives-of-younger-bowel-cancer-patients
