Did you know that up to 99% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated or even prevented if detected early enough?
Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, with bowel cancer claiming a life every 2 hours.
That’s why TerryWhite Chemmart are proudly supporting us in our new ‘Trust Your Gut’ campaign, to raise awareness for the signs and symptoms of this deadly disease in the hope that more Australians can increase their chance of early detection.
Bowel Screening Testing Kits are now available at TerryWhite Chemmart pharmacies across the country or you can also order one online through our website.
Thank you to Michael Minter from TerryWhite Chemmart Charlestown in NSW for sharing his personal experience with bowel cancer as part of this campaign and to TerryWhite Chemmart helping us raise awareness in stores and online for this deadly but highly preventable disease.
