Bowel cancer advocate and supporter Rachel, hosted a ‘Bowel Cancer Ball’ fundraise to raise awareness that you are Never2Young for bowel cancer following her own diagnosis, alongside raising funds for Bowel Cancer Australia.

“Since being diagnosed with Stage 3 Bowel Cancer at 38 years old, I had my tumour removed including cancerous lymph nodes and am now undergoing six months of chemotherapy.

I am passionate about supporting Bowel Cancer Australia because they do a lot of advocacy for early-onset bowel cancer. They offer great support which I have used myself such as the nutritionist, the Facebook group (The Movement - Wellness Beyond Diagnosis) online webinars and a great community of young people sharing stories and providing inspiration.

 I think everyone shed a tear at least once on the night with all the inspirational stories we heard. Helping to spread awareness, advocacy and having those conversations about your health.

Thanks to all those who donated to the raffle and auction draws. Your generous donations made for a fabulous night for all and we raised $14,108.45 for Bowel Cancer Australia." ~ Rachel
