“In 2015, my uncle was diagnosed with bowel cancer. This was a really tough time for me as I’m very close with my family and they unfortunately live on the other side of the world.

I felt helpless and like all I could do was sit, wait, and hope for the best outcome. This was distressing to say the least as the statistics on the number of people who make it out the other side when diagnosed with bowel cancer are not favourable.

I was one of the lucky ones that can now say that I know someone who has been triumphant in that fight. What’s better is that that person is very close to my heart.

When I was looking through the charities available to choose on the Dry July page and came across Bowel Cancer Australia, it was an easy choice.

There are many worthwhile charities that are doing amazing things, but Bowel Cancer Australia - in my opinion - sits right at the top of the list.” ~ Mladen.
