A NEW campaign has been launched to encourage people to get checked for cancer.

With research highlighting that fear of a potential cancer diagnosis continues to stop people acting, the Scottish Government’s Survivors campaign aims to illustrate that more people are surviving cancer than ever before, and highlight that getting checked early plays a big part.

People are being encouraged to join the movement by sharing what a loved one’s cancer survival has meant to them, using #MySurvivor in a bid to tell the other side of the story.
