November 2019

Perth man Andrew Moloney and his partner Karen Parker didn’t need to look up the answers to the 2019 Golden Nugget online quiz, which tested peoples’ knowledge of bowel cancer signs and symptoms and encouraged participants to ‘check their poo’.

Karen's son-in-law John-Ross had complained about symptoms for several years before he was eventually diagnosed with the disease.

Affectionately referred to as “JR”, John-Ross was married to Karen’s daughter Jo-ann.

A qualified mechanic, guitarist, and dog trainer, JR loved his wife, 2 children, dog, and pet turtle.

He was also passionate about music, motorbikes and the Carlton football team.


At just 35 years of age, Marty was diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer, metastasising to his liver, lungs and lymphatic system.
