“After being diagnosed with bowel cancer shortly after turning 30, I wanted to do Dry July to fundraise for Bowel Cancer Australia.
My diagnosis was a complete shock to me, my family and my friends. My diagnosis was made within days of having stomach pains. I had surgery to remove a tumour.
The support shown by everyone involved in my treatment and ongoing follow-up checks has been great.
After experiencing firsthand the support that our healthcare workers provide, I now know the importance that fundraising can have to people.
By promoting my fundraising efforts, I am also hoping to raise awareness that bowel cancer does impact younger people too.
I have surpassed my initial fundraising target, which has been incredibly humbling. I know the money raised will make a positive impact to whoever needs it.” ~ Ayden.
