Southern Bowel Screening Champions share their stories

Highlander's player Tom Franklin is just one of the eight remarkable people who have stepped up to help save lives through our new Southern Bowel Screening Champions' Campaign.

Tom is joined by an ex All Black, ex Southland rugby player, a City Councillor, two kaumatua, an ex nurse and a bowel cancer survivor.

Each one sharing their personal, moving and often uplifting stories and memories to help encourage other people to recognise the importance of participating in the National Bowel Screening Programme.

You can view all eight videos here.
