Fundraiser and patient, Jo, has one message for younger people with bowel cancer symptoms – "go with your gut".
At 46, Jo thought she was too young for bowel cancer but quickly realised this is not always the case.
"In 2013 I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. It was a massive shock and something that I knew very little about. It was at a time in my life that I felt very healthy, happy, energised and life was actually pretty fun," Jo said.
"If something is not right keep getting it checked until you are happy."
