To encourage the younger demographic to be more in tune with their bodies, to learn to know what is ‘normal’, and to go get checked if something isn’t right. There is no shame in seeking help!

Early detection is crucial... it saved our lives.

25 is the new 50, so don’t wait until it’s too late - get checked now!


25StayAlive advocate Dahlia Matkovic was recently featured in ABC News. She says as a young, healthy person she never expected to be diagnosed with bowel cancer in her 20s. She wants everyone to know the risks, no matter what age.


Learn to know what is ‘normal’ with YOUR body. If you think something is not quite right... whether that be with your boobs, balls, poo, or anything at all... go see your doctor ASAP!

There are many ways you can be checking your body. What about getting a bowel screening kit?
