The ABC and Ten News both covered today’s launch of our national TV commercial to encourage Australians to screen for bowel cancer.

We were thrilled with stories on ABC Radio News, Ten Eyewitness News and a segment on ABC News 24 Weekend Breakfast.

The Ten News story aired nationally and featured Natalie Yazdani, who lost her father Farhad to bowel cancer earlier this year. She has been a great supporter of our awareness campaign – thanks Natalie! It was a powerful story and no doubt helped us raise awareness across Australia.

Nick appeared live in the studio on ABC’s Weekend Breakfast Program with Andrew Geoghegan and Eliza Harvey where they discussed our TV commercial, how common bowel cancer is and the importance of early detection for prevention of the disease.
