I am keen to raise awareness of bowel cancer in anyway that I can, so I was pleased to be invited as guest speaker at this week's Cancer Council fundraiser at the Sandhurst Club. Over 170 guests were in attendance at the morning tea which was supported by the Sandhurst Club and Sandhurst Real Estate. After sharing my story about my journey with bowel cancer, I was impressed that many people came up to speak to me to say that they had been inspired to go and get a medical check and to look after their health after hearing my story. The month of June is bowel cancer awareness month one of the key themes being you're never too young to be affected. Check out www.bowelcancer.org for further details.
