"I'm so proud to support Bowel Cancer Australia. ⁠

My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer on his wife's birthday and found himself facing his first chemotherapy treatment two weeks later on his 40th birthday. Although there had been some signs, they were thought to be IBS. ⁠

Before his diagnosis I knew nothing about bowel cancer, but I now hope to help raise awareness and some funds for this great cause.⁠

I took part in the HBF Run for a Reason half marathon in May 2023 and was so proud to have raised $1,030. This will be the first of many fundraisers for Bowel Cancer Australia!" ~ Carly.⁠
