The “gutsy” influencers are hoping to bust taboos and shine a light on the courage of poeple living with the disease for Bowel Cancer Awareness month.

Bowel & Cancer Research, the charity behind the campaign has released a range of witty t-shirts in a bid to raise awareness.

The t-shirt comes in sizes S, M and L. If you’d like to support but can’t buy a t-shirt, you can text GUTS17 to 70070 to donate up to £10.

The charity says: “Bowel & Cancer Research supports the best research across the UK into bowel cancer and other bowel diseases, by funding the brightest ideas and best talent.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF BOWEL CANCER?

Bowel cancer can be treated, but the earlier it is diagnosed the better a patient’s chance of survival.If you suffer any symptoms, however embarrassing you may think they are, go to see your doctor.GPs deal with bowels, tummy problems, diarrhoea and all sorts on a regular basis, so what may seem grim to you, is part of their normal working day.The key signs you could have bowel cancer include:
bleeding from your bottom, and/or blood in your poo
a change in bowel habit lasting three weeks or longer
unexplained weight loss
extreme tiredness for no obvious reason
a pain or lump in your tummy
Most of the time, a person suffering these symptoms won’t have bowel cancer.Other health problems can cause similar symptoms, but it is vital doctors rule out cancer early on.

“Its pioneering and inclusive approach places it in a unique position to understand the impact of these diseases on individuals and their families, friends and colleagues.”

Dr Ranj commented: “I’ve Got Guts” shines a light on the courage with which so many people deal on a daily basis with their bowel disease, and the impact that it has on their lives and those of their nearest and dearest.

“Despite the serious impact of bowel disease, it receives about half the research funding that its impact merits, perhaps because bottoms, bowels and their function are one of the very last taboos, and keeping it hidden may be an important reason why.”

Bowel & Cancer Research supporter Tanya Cohen added: I have suffered with bowel disease since I was about 12 following glandular fever. Eventually my symptoms became so severe that it took control of my daily life, and hospital admissions and procedures became the norm.

“After years of being diagnosed with a functional gut disorder, I have now been diagnosed with IBD. I have chosen to support the I’ve Got Guts campaign as it aims to put a stop to the poo taboo!

“We all have guts, so why are we so embarrassed to discuss what happens behind closed doors? Removing the stigma which comes with bowel disease, we hope to encourage individuals who suffer in silence to get checked, and in certain cases, this could be a life saver.”
