We need to stop this horrendous loss of loved ones to bowel cancer. Screening from 50 would significantly reduce deaths due to this illness and prevent other families from suffering as Lauren’s family have.

As the second biggest cancer killer in this country screening should start at a much younger age such as 40.

My wife was thankfully saved by having a bowel screen in her 50s. Had it been after 60 the outcome would probably have been very different.
