Bowel cancer was a hot topic in tonight’s Offspring episode, where Nina talked about the importance of screening and shared a link from The Jodi Lee Bowel Cancer Foundation’s Facebook page.

In the opening scenes, Billie and Ange were looking at Nina’s Facebook page to find out what her current love interest would be seeing, only to find that Nina’s only post was a link shared from The Jodi Lee Bowel Cancer Foundation’s Facebook page encouraging screening for the early detection of bowel cancer.

There was an entire dialogue around Nina’s Facebook profile, where Nina defended her post saying bowel cancer is a really important issue as it’s Australia’s second biggest cancer killer, and the test saves lives!

The Offspring on Ten Facebook page posted about the scene, linking to our Facebook page which instantly received over 1,500 new followers!

A huge thank you to Offspring and Nina for helping us raise awareness of bowel cancer.
