“Bowel cancer is very important to my family and to me. Like so many other families in Australia, we have had to deal with the loss of family members due to bowel cancer.

In May of 2016, my uncle (also my godfather) passed away due to bowel cancer at the age of 68. My family was heartbroken to first hear the news, then to go through it all with him.

From this, bowel cancer awareness and prevention has always been important to me. I do it to honour his life and story, and to make a change in the community.” ~ John.
