After taking Rotary’s annual test for many years I missed one year. Luckily I did a follow up test and cancer was detected. It’s scary, I had no symptoms. The only way you can be confident that you are in control of your life as far as bowel cancer is concerned is to take annual tests. Rotary makes it easy by promoting a convenient quality test throughout the month of May. It will not prevent cancer but for me the early detection means less invasive treatment and an improved prognosis. Buy a kit, use it and return a sample, for your family’s sake.Anthony WillsChandler
I only missed two years and that's all it took for me to be in serious trouble. It was such a shock to hear that the test came back with three positives.Max BissettRedland Bay
I would certainly endorse Bowelscan and would urge everyone to take the test each year in the hope of detecting bowel cancer at the earliest possible stage.Roy McQueenVictoria Point
I was so lucky that the test caught the cancer when it did. It scares me to think had I left it any longer I might not be here to watch my grandchildren grow up.Robert MullerCapalaba
The programme runs during one month every year to raise the awareness of the risks of bowel cancer and to encourage Australian's most at risk to take the annual test.
With the support of hundreds of pharmacies throughout Australia, the programme distributes Bowelscan testing kits to local communities, giving people the opportunity to test themselves early and regularly enough to have a fighting chance at survival.Read About Rotary Bowelscan
