People living with bowel cancer like Angel, diagnosed with stage III bowel cancer at the age of 37, and her family.


“I love being able to pick up the phone to call the Bowel Care Nurses and knowing that they’ll be there to listen to you, support you and find you the help that you need. It’s reassuring to know you’re not alone

Our little (Peer-to-Peer Support Network) group is by far the best thing out of this whole ordeal - I simply feel like the luckiest person to have the support of these girls and it makes me feel good that the new girls can ask us questions and ask for advice and just have a whinge. It’s also good having Sarah, Jodie and Mallory who have finished treatment and are living proof there is life after chemo and that it does get better.”
