Petition to drop age of bowel cancer screening delivered to Green MP Dr Elizabeth Kerekere at Parliament

A Taranaki bowel cancer survivor has delivered a petition to Parliament calling on the screening age to be dropped in the hopes more lives can be saved.

“Early bowel cancer detection has been proven internationally to save lives.”

Ahead of the petition presentation, Kerekere said she was happy to accept the petition.

“We’re very committed to supporting community led action. And then taking that petition I’m able to speak to it when it comes up in the health select committee.”
