A stage 4 bowel cancer diagnosis wasn't going to stop Voula and Steven Tzaneros from celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in style with 200 friends. In fact, they were going one step further - holding the event held in support of Bowel Cancer Australia and raising $132,000.
 
In preparation for her upcoming trip to Europe, Voula was at her doctor's for some travel vaccinations when the GP noticed a lump on her neck. While she thought it was just a mosquito bite, the GP had his suspicions and sent Voula for an ultrasound.

Warmest thanks to Joanne and Runcorn High School Class of 2004 for fundraising in support of Bowel Cancer Australia at their school reunion.
 
Right from the beginning the event was not to be your ordinary high school reunion! "We were set to make a difference to bowel cancer sufferers and their families. Why, you might ask. A special member of our year level, Allan was diagnosed with bowel cancer back in 2006. After an 18 month battle with the cancer Allan sadly passed away just prior to his 21st birthday. Members of our year level travelled from far and wide to contribute. It was such a great opportunity to reconnect, all for a good cause".

Inspired by his Dad's bowel cancer journey, Liam selected Bowel Cancer Australia as charity of choice for his Gold Coast Half Marathon effort.
 
He had great support from friends and family come the big race, with many cheering him on and wearing their Join the Bowel Movement shirts with pride to help motivate him on the day.
 
Liam did an amazing job and fundraised over $4,000 to support all that Bowel Cancer Australia does from research to raising awareness.
 
Warmest thanks Liam, family and friends, we very much appreciate your support.

Motivated by the 'No Makeup Selfie' movement, Katie decided she wanted to help make a difference to a cause that perhaps wasn't as widely publicised. She decided to donate her lovely locks to make real-hair wigs for cancer patients. 
 
"After reading about the realities of bowel cancer and how it could be avoided with increased awareness and early detection, I knew it was something I wanted to support." Having a history of hereditary bowel cancer in her family and with her Auntie currently battling the disease, bowel cancer was also a cause close to Katie's heart.
