I feel I only had cancer for 6weeks and it didn't really hit me. It hit my husband and family instead. It feels like they went through it instead of me.
Never in my wildest of dreams could I ever have imagined I would hear the words, "you have 6 months to 2 years left," especially at the age of 36.
My name is Sarah I’m now 36 but was diagnosed with bowel cancer back in May 2016 when I was 33.
My twin sister, Lauren, was diagnosed at the age of 28 with Stage 4 Bowel Cancer. I don’t think I will ever forget that day, it was second most heart-breaking day of my life, the most heart-breaking day was when she died at the age of 29.
I am happy to report that I am still bowel cancer free! I attend regular appointments with my doctors and specialists, and I have also become a lot more conscious of my overall health.
