I am 31 years old and happily married with two children (3 years and 18 months old) and another little boy on the way, due any time now. I'm an Australian Federal Police Officer currently attached to the Specialist Response and Security Tactical Response Team.

Bowel cancer was the last thing on my mind when I started to experience small amounts of rectal bleeding.

I threw away the National Bowel Cancer Screening kit I received in the mail thinking it was an invasion of privacy – yet screening is the most important thing you can do!

 

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer in October 2013.

I am a 57 year old and I guess my diagnosis of bowel cancer did not come as a real shock. At 21 (1982) I was diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and subsequently had a sub-total colectomy.

I just wanted to share my story with you and anyone who would be interested to not only raise awareness, but to show that people can get through the worst of things and there is always a positive side to things.
