Deborah James celebrates latest achievement following her pleas

Reflected on her latest campaigning success

Dame Deborah James has celebrated her latest campaigning success on Instagram.

Health advocate Deborah has urged supermarket brands to highlight bowel cancer symptoms on the packaging of toilet rolls.

She hopes this might ensure people are more aware of crucial signs in order to catch any cancer early on.

And now it seems the 40-year-old mum-of-two has achieved her aim after Andrex indicated that will happen.

What Andrex are doing

According to reports, Andrex has teamed up with Bowel Cancer UK to put the information on packaging.

Furthermore, it aims for bowel cancer symptoms to appear on all of their packaging within the next year.

Additionally, there will be a QR code on the packs. That code will redirect people to Bowel Cancer UK’s website for further information.

“He’s off on holiday to the US. I have told him they have to go, they’ve planned the trip for ages. I also told him he must not come back, under any circumstances,” Deborah said.

Speaking ahead of their farewell, she added: “He says he’ll come home. It’ll be horrible saying goodbye to him. I can’t really think about it right now.”
