As part of my legacy, I wish to campaign to lower the age of free bowel cancer screening to 25.
Bowel cancer is a common type of cancer in both men and women. About 1 in 20 people will get it during their lifetime.
Screening can help detect bowel cancer at an early stage, when it's easier to treat. It can also be used to help check for and remove small growths in the bowel called polyps, which can turn into cancer over time.
Bowel cancer can affect you at any age....despite this, NHS bowel cancer screening is only offered to people aged 55 or over, as this is when you're more likely to get bowel cancer.
Please sign this petition so we can request that Jeremy Hunt MP can bring this before Parliament and discuss it with his fellow MPs, with a view to changing that legislation
