Sara and her family were all surprised when her stepfather, Rob Bosch, was diagnosed with bowel cancer.
Rob was fit and healthy, but by the time the cancer was discovered it had already metastasised and was invading other parts of his body. He died at the young age of 50.
However, Rob’s legacy will live on through the incredible awareness and fundraising efforts of Sara, her best friend Amy, and literally hundreds of others who knew and loved him.
Amy and Sara hosted a ball at Dockside in Darling Harbour on February 22nd to celebrate Rob’s life and the impact he had on so many others.
The black-tie event included a 3-course dinner, music and presentations by family and friends, highlighting the importance of being bowel cancer aware regardless of age.
Titled ‘Time is Precious’, the event was a huge success, with over 285 guests in attendance, raising more than $42,000 for Bowel Cancer Australia.
“I am so passionate about this topic and look forward to our continuous journey to find a cure,” said Sara.
The young women from Sydney’s North Shore said they were overwhelmed by the generosity of all those involved.
“The success of the night was more than we could ever have imagined,” Amy said. “We can’t wait to do it again next year; bigger and better!”
