The year 2012 I turned 40 and I thought the year was going to be one of my best years. I have two beautiful daughters who at the time were 4 years and 2 1/2 years old. I started feeling very tired every day. I just put it down to having young children and being a busy mum/wife. I had low iron for many years too so I thought it must have been that as well.

My name is Kathy, I’m 56, married, no kids and live in Pinjarra W.A. I began my journey in 2014 and my symptoms started with bleeding from the bottom. I did all the tests from my GP and then a colonoscopy which confirmed the tumour in my colon.
