Campaign: ‘Bowel Cancer’ Spelled Out In Screening Kits

Campaign: ‘Bowel Cancer’ Spelled Out In Screening Kits

Five thousand bowel-cancer screening kits erected in Sydney’s Martin Place to form the words Bowel Cancer are the genesis of a new national campaign for The Jodi Lee Foundation launching this week through AJF Partnership Melbourne.

The campaign from The Jodi Lee Foundation is funded by the Australian Government and encourages people from age 50 to screen for the presence of bowel cancer.

Central to the Foundation’s new campaign is a television commercial that was shot in Martin Place. With the words ‘bowel cancer’ made out of the screening kits, people were encouraged to take the kits and as they did, the words disappeared.  The idea is that as screening has such a high success rate, the more people screen, the more bowel cancer may disappear.

Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world, with more than 17,000 people diagnosed each year. By 2020, this number is expected to increase to almost 20,000 bowel cancer cases detected annually. Up to 90% of bowel cancer cases can be successfully treated if detected early.

“Many people don’t experience any symptoms of bowel cancer until it has become more advanced or has spread, which is why screening is so important,” said The Jodi Lee Foundation CEO Nick Lee. “A simple screening test that can be completed in the privacy of your own home might just save your life.”

The concept for the TV commercial was developed by AJF Partnership. The sculptural work and film was directed by The Glue Society’s Peter Baker, with production by Will O’Rourke.
