Staff in NHS Forth Valley are supporting two new national campaigns to change how cancer is viewed in Scotland. The wee C campaign aims to alter the way people think about the disease, often referred to as the Big C, and highlights that cancer isn’t the threat it used to be. The Get Checked campaign encourages people to present earlier with potential signs or symptoms of cancer. People across Scotland are also being encouraged to take a ‘Get Checked Selfie’ wearing something checked or tartan to show their support for the campaign. Earlier detection, research breakthroughs and treatment advances are cutting the disease down to size.
