Former footballer Alan Stubbs says 'don't leave your health down to luck'

Alan Stubbs knows he's lucky to be alive. 

The former Everton and Bolton defender has twice had cancer and was only originally diagnosed with the illness after a random drugs test following a game in 1998.

Alan is now leading a campaign by Bupa Health Clinics to encourage more men to go to the doctors after a survey showed 23 per cent hadn't been in the last year. 

Alan has been cancer free since 2001, which is when he joined Everton.

He would later become the first Hibernian Manager to win the Scottish Cup in 114 years but now Stubbs is urging us not to leave our health down to luck.
