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.
9 years I've been fighting this off... now I'm 12 short months away from remission.
