“Overall, it was a hugely successful event last year, it was beautiful to see the entire community come out and support such a great cause. I had so many people come and talk to me about their own family bowel cancer stories, and they were very thankful for the event we had put on.
Our daily bowel cancer facts also sparked a lot of conversation around bowel cancer which is exactly what we wanted it to do! I have a background in bowel and pancreatic cancer research, so I definitely understand the importance of eliminating the stigma surrounding the disease.
We set out to raise $2,000 and we far exceeded that thanks to the generosity of the community as well as the local businesses that got involved.
It was also beautiful to see all the love and support for the Kwan family, who were the reason we put this on in the first place.” ~ Ashleigh
